When we talk about our science or our work, the language we use can alienate, confuse, anger or bemuse those we communicate with; and often we never even know it’s happened. Our vocabulary is bonded to our own set of Basic Human Values, but an understanding of this can transform the way we tell better science ‘stories’.
