More on Academicish Clarityness

I kind of disagree with this. Specialist terminology is a separate issue from stylistic clarity. The following sentence is an example:

“Every self-homeomorphism of a product of two pseudo-arcs is a product of homeomorphisms of the separate factors, composed possibly with a factor switch.”

Apart form the terminology, which is completely opaque to me, the structure is quite clear. I understand the relation between the parts which are presented in a quite logical format. This is very different from, say…..

“One of the separate factors’ homeomorphisms’ products that possibly a  factor switch is used to compose is what every self-homeomorphism of a product of two pseudo-arcs is.”

I think that basically means the same thing, I didn’t change anything that I even suspected might be technical term, I just sliced and diced the syntax. This is how many might feel compelled to make sure that not only the terminology but the structure of the sentence is as difficult as possible. Again, a good idea needs clear structure to set it off appropriately.
