I love words as much as the next person, but is there any reason to make them too elaborate and over-the-top, especially in a textbook? You’d think that the authors were hoping the reader wouldn’t understand a thing they’ve written by the words and syntax they use, as if they had the ulterior motive of not wanting to share any of their knowledge to others at all. It’s quite a paradox – writing in order to give information, but actually not giving the so-called information. Or at least doing it in an extremely roundabout way. It’s like writing in English. Hiding the meaning in plain sight. Hide a tree in the forest.
