About

There are very many specialized terms and communication conventions related to doing business in English. This tag covers questions about those topics, including any of the following:

  • The meaning of a specialized term used in management, commerce, or industry
  • Whether a given word or idiom has an appropriate level of formality for use in business communication
  • Whether a piece of industry jargon is likely to be understood by members of the general public

Questions in this tag should generally involve terms that are used across multiple companies and industries. Questions about jargon that's specific to a particular company or a single narrow specialization are likely to be closed as "too localized".
