Technobabble (a portmanteau of technology and babble), also called technospeak,[1] is a type of nonsense that consists of buzzwords, esoteric language, or jargon that is impossible for the average reader, listener or viewer to understand.[2] A dishonest person might use technobabble to overwhelm and confuse the audience, masking their dishonesty, while a science fiction writer might use it to cover plot holes or to invoke suspension of disbelief of story elements that defy current understandings of science and technology.[2]
