I was going to send email similar to this, but "assumed" this type of answer
just too simple. I, too, try to change odd or unfamiliar technical words to
simple words because you never really know how much technical jargon a reader
knows (even if the word and its application are used correctly). Some
technical jargon may be specific to the marketing types of a particular
company or standards group.

One thing I try to avoid is the humanizing (correct usage?) of objects.
"Talk" is such a human thing, where "communicate" and "interaction" have
general connotations.
