Why shouldn't you use big words in your survey?

No Points For Seven Letter Words

It's more important to be clear and concise, then show off your use of the English language.

If you are dealing with a survey with 50 plus questions (that people were nice enough to take) the last thing you want them to do is struggle on each question and mull over the meaning. This could lead to further confusion when it comes time to answering these questions, and thus skewing the survey results.

Instead, keep the questions short, simple and concise.
