I don't see much use for this category - all the subcategories e.g. Category:Jargon:Marketing and others are also unnecessary duplicates of e.g. Category:Marketing. Putting things in {{context}} shouldn't need the jargon tags IMHO Keene 21:02, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

I've already deleted Category:Jargon:Scale modeling (the most deletable category there, with just one entry in it (a user subpage). Keene 21:04, 11 April 2008 (UTC)
  • As a side note, is there any use having even {{jargon}}, which some could argue is a duplicate of {{context}}? Keene 21:06, 11 April 2008 (UTC)
Delete; this duplicates what the standard categories are designed for. And, yes, {{jargon}} duplicates the function of {{context}}. --EncycloPetey 21:49, 11 April 2008 (UTC)
  • Delete both, but note that there are cases where labeling an individual sense as "jargon" provides useful information (i.e. that unlike most "slang" or "informal" terms it is used mostly in professional or academic contexts). -- Visviva 13:29, 14 March 2009 (UTC)
Keep - maybe we can change its function to include things like legalese, governmentese and other -ese jargons? --Jackofclubs 07:27, 4 September 2008 (UTC)
Do you mean that those words should be categorized in this category?—msh210 16:31, 4 September 2008 (UTC)
Yes, this is a possible solution. --Jackofclubs 09:51, 13 September 2008 (UTC)
  • Kept, reworked - but now as a category for different jargons (legalese, governmentese) etc. --Jackofclubs 10:49, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
