Is It not the Time to Reflect on «Language Despotism» in Psychology?

2007. Vol. 4. No. 2. P. 48–55 [issue contents]
Lots of «stock phrases» are used in the professional language of psychologists. They may give rise to associations and ideas that lead to an inadequate understanding of a subject. Although such stock phrases are usually clear to psychologists, they may mislead representatives of other scientific areas. The author gives a number of examples of such «ambiguous» terminology and calls the professional community to discuss the issue of its possible withdrawal from usage and replacing it with more pithy statements.
