terence57 Posted February 21, 2016 Report Share Posted February 21, 2016 Over the past couple of decades I have noticed the phrase "put some language around...(a certain topic)" turning up in conversation with ever greater frequency. In particular, political debates harness this phrase a lot, as if language was a kind of legalistic power tool. So, is this any different from saying, say, "write a clear report about" or "let's condense these ideas into writing"? Or is there some special way of using words that I am not familiar with, and where does this originate from? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
