For the most part, I'm content knowing the difference between a noun and a verb, and occasionally being able to follow what their talking about. I tend to describe what something does then let someone else come up with a long word for it. But IMO that's how it should be, that is, described after it is already in place, rather than letting preconcieved notions of what long words colour it..
