Edition of 5 + 1 ap. p.o.a.

In linguistics and editing, logorrhea or logorrhoea (from Greek logorrhoia, "word-flux") is an excessive flow of words. It is often used pejoratively to describe prose which is highly abstract, and, consequently, contains little concrete language. Since abstract writing is hard to visualize, it often seems as though it makes no sense, and that all the words are excessive. Writers in academic fields which concern themselves mostly with the abstract, such as philosophy, especially postmodernism, often fail to include extensive concrete examples of their ideas; so an examination of their work might lead one to believe that it is all nonsense, hence the pejorative epithet "pomobabble" (a portmanteau of postmodernist babble). -

"Therefore, since brevity is the soul of wit,
And tediousness the limbs and outward flourishes,
I will be brief." - William Shakepeare
