Abstract /

The aim of science is not that of replacing what is natural with artificiality, but rather of prolonging that which is natural in certain aspects, with the finality of greater efficacy or adequacy. recognized that the natural condition is usually preferable and more adequate, and science is an aid, not an end in itself. This applies equally to language, which can be "natural" (spontaneously learned and used in or dinary life) or "artificial" (rectified and contrived in a certain manner within specialized spheres). Scientific or technical language is usually of the lat ter kind, but its function should not be that of transforming the ordinary and natural way of expressing things in such a way that in the end obscurity is achieved, but rather that of prolonging natural language by adapting Nonetheless, it is to be it to more complex situations, with the aim of explaining those situations in adequate terms. There should therefore not be any conflict between both forms of expression, but a fundamental accommodation. This applies equally to journalists writing on specialized matters, and implies both clarity and grammatical correctness within scientific language, far removed from false erudition, esoteric jargon and other incorrect uses of language.
