Verbiage /ˈvəːbɪɪdʒ/ (n.)
(Derogatory; usu. by salespeople) The fundamental legal and commercial protections a legal eagle spends hours crafting and negotiating into every contract. The only thing keeping a salesperson’s ass out of jail. Not to be confused with flannel (although salespeople have no inkling there is any difference).
- Oh, all right this might be exaggerating a little bit.
