According to Wikipedia, the definition of Jargon is – ‘Jargon is terminology which is especially defined in relationship to a specific activity, profession, group, or event.’ The use of jargons started with the technical backgrounds in science, especially when the terms and terminologies were too long and took a lot of time to explain. Precisely, the use of jargons can initiate a type of short-hand, to define any idea that is repeatedly discussed among the same community or groups. The jargons used in outsourcing call centers are completely different from the common day use and totally focused towards saving the time that is usually seen in the call center floors.
