NEAspeak

The NEA language is a perverse class of speech all its own, but after working with it for weeks, I find I’m starting to sound like this myself.

“The “Attachments Form” is not a form in the conventional sense. Rather, it is a place to attach documents that you have completed and saved elsewhere on your computer.”

And, my favorite: “Use clear language that can be understood readily.”

It’d be fun, or maybe it’d be perverse, to create a grant application for a grant that doesn’t exist, and through this application to tell the story of a society that no longer exists, either. I’d like to see what grant applications looked like in the CCP.
