Buzzwords Photo By definition a buzzword is actually an idiom. If one were to look a buzzword up in a reference source such as a dictionary the meaning probably would not come close to the meaning of the buzzword. Buzzwords differ from jargon by the fact that the purpose of a buzzword is most often to obscure meaning whereas jargon is simply terms used in a particular area or field. Buzzwords are most common in the business, political, and communication fields. The meaning of a buzzword may change or go out of fashion entirely. The meanings for the buzzwords I use in this quiz are only verifiable until 2003. My two main sources of many are Wikipedia and BuzzWhack. The latter site was created by John Walston who has been a top editor of USA Today and the WIllmington News Journal. This was a whole new area for me. Hope you find it as interesting and informative as I did. ENJOY!
