What did he say? (Wikijargon)

Sometimes Wikipedians sound like they are speaking in a foreign language, even when they are not. This is because they have created many specialized terms (jargon) pertaining to Wikipedia. Fortunately, 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.
