Wikipedia:Tip of the day/July 22, 2008
Sometimes Wikipedians sound like they are speaking in a foreign language, even when they are not. This is because Wikipedians have created a great number of specialized terms (jargon) pertaining to Wikipedia and the activity of Wikipedians. Fortunately, being the encyclopedists that they are, they have also created a Wikipedia Glossary to explain these terms.
Remember, actual encyclopedia articles should be written in jargon-free language which is readily understandable without specific knowledge of the Wikipedia project.
