Definition: Psychobabble

The Merriam-Webster dictionary tells me that the word “psychobabble” galloped into pop-culture lingo in 1975.  Here is their quick and dirty definition: language that is used by people who talk about mental and emotional problems and that is seen as silly or meaningless : psychological jargon.

The world of independent authors and self-publishers is beginning to sound like a great pool of psychobabble. Or is it the Tower of Babel?
