Tips: Jargon is derived from the Middle English jargoun, which means "unintelligible speech or gibberish." Because it refers to a language that most people can't clearly understand, jargon has also come to denote specialized terminology used in certain professions, which people outside the field don't use or understand. Legal jargon and medical jargon are two, common examples.
