English vocabulary II.

The plenum of the scientific world’s henchmen likes to abjure irrelevant questions and their exegesis of scientific texts pertains to the thesis; there is no pettifogging or flexuous analysis that stretches across the livelong article. Empirical studies bespeak proof, they say, but according to some, they bandy about a surplus of information that would test even the most adamantine of academicians. Most of us are lucky if we understand half of what is written, let alone grasp a viva voce presentation. Of course, most of us would never be part of a conclave of scientists, therefore chiselling our brain may not be needed on a high level.

It is perhaps not in the least ad rem that some scientists still carry hircine beards reminiscent of the fashion of past centuries.
