Observations on Business English[edit | edit source]

Market slang contains a lot of synonyms and words with overlapping meanings ( e.g. capital, equity, shares, stock, investments, holdings, assets etc. almost used interchangeably ) and could be argued that this is done intentionally to render investorspeak non-understandable for the non-investor. Like all cliques and guilds ( lawyers, doctrors etc. ) develop language to make their trade harder for others ( outsiders ) to understand.”
