Why fancy words? Job security.

Job security.
It’s why we have reminants of New Greek and New Latin among Doctors, Philosophers, Biologists, various Scientific Disciplines, etc.

Chemistry seems to have somewhat of a valid reason for precision… although its standards of nomenclature also show shifts and changes due to fads of the time.

Jargon is fine if it carries extra information. Sometimes a single word is better. But in my experience, there’s not much you couldn’t teach to a young child that adults learn about in _some_ form or another so that they can understand at least the ‘gist’ of the concept.

Yeah. Job security. If they don’t understand us, we keep our jobs longer.
