The Irony Behind This Technical Conversation

He recognised her from far and decided to start a conversation. She was in the university's Study Corner reading up some books.

He: Hi.
She: Hi. Do I know you?
He: Haha...remember we were in the same CCA in JC?
She: Oh yah yah. So how are you?
He: Well I am now studying Science and this semester I have this module called "Introduction to Technical Language and Writing".
She: Really? I am taking that as an elective in this term. I thought that it will be good to know some technical jargons especially when I plan to be a financial consultant in some research institute.
He: That's nice.

It was at this point of time that the conversation started to go technical.

She: So what do you know about technical language?
He: about photosynthesis?
She: That's easy. It's just some plant absorbing CO2 to give O2 and at the same time make food for themselves.
He: True...that's the overall aim of it. How about Quantum Physics?
She: Ah hah! Now that's interesting.

And so it begins.

He: Did you know that electrons exhibit both wave and particle like features?
She: I see...I read somewhere that as m approaches x where x is some constant, d approaches another theoretical constant also known as r.
He: Not really, it should be k.
She: Oh ok.
He: Also, the wave function is notable when the frequency of harmonic oscillations approaches the natural resonance frequency of the electron carrier. So more if the environment displays an anisotropic behaviour.
She: Anisotropic in terms of?
He: Anisotropic as when lambda theta is reduced to near-zero.
She: Now that's interesting.
He: Yes.
She: I maybe new in this but I feel that if lambda theta is incorporated into the sin-cos formulae of Beuller, then maybe the anti-matter of the electron maybe realised.
He: Now that's something new!

Then her stomach rumbled. After all, it was lunch time.

She: Oh shucks, I am hungry. Want to go and eat?
He: Oh okay.
She: By the way, I have to be honest with you. I know nuts of what I said just now. Haha. So please don't share them with anyone.
He: Really? Same here. I was just blabbering stuff.
She: Wow! You sounded so natural.
He: The same goes for you.
She: I guess this course on technical language maybe interesting after all.
He: Haha...
She: And I thought you know what you were talking about.
He: Not really. I just agree with you and blabber some other irrelevant stuff. I am surprised that you agreed with me.

Just then, a senior professor from the university approached them.

Prof: I couldn't help but overhear your "interesting" conversation.
He and She: Really?
Prof: It was totally off the charts.
He: Haha...I know.
Prof: It totally exceeded my expectations! I didn't realised that you could actually incorporate lambda theta in the sin-cos formalae. Nice job She.
She: Huh?
He: You must be joking. It cannot be that the nonsense she sprouted was some new discovery.
Prof: Yes I am joking. You two better go to your classes now instead of behaving like a scientific fool.
He: That's an oxymoron isn't it? Scientific fool.
She: I think we better stop all these. Let's go.

And so, the two went to the canteen.

He: Jia lat paiseh. Hopefully he won't be the one teaching in the course on technical language.
She: Yes. If not maybe he will even ask us to demonstrate our "knowledge" and "skill" in front of everyone.
He: Hopefully not.

Sadly, they were wrong. The senior professor was the one lecturing in that class and also, He and She were asked to provide a negative demonstration.

Thanks. I think you went too much in details with this article.There are a lot of things to say about this article and we can debate it all night long, probably.

Most of the students have many doubts on technical language. There are many professionals are available online to teach the language. Everyone should get knowledge on technical language.
