I think also its a slam against the stereotypical philosopher who spends more time analyzing the words and their meanings in order to bring things down to a war of semantics, without ever actually contributing a real thought to the discussion.
On the subject of this stereotype.
Yes, there are people like that out there who will get bogged down in the semantics, smirk, and think themselves clever for doing so.
But at the same time there is a real legitimate purpose in going through the semantics of an argument. Particularly when the language being used is English. Words have connotations and baggage that accompany them when they are used, and often times the problem in a discussion is that people are using the same word but are thinking about slightly different concepts, and this unspecified difference in concepts is the real source of the disagreement.
One reason many philosophers like Aristotle or Kant are dense is because they spend an excruciatingly boring amount of time going through technical terminology because they want to be precise and convey exactly what they mean with little room for misinterpretation.
An example of word containing baggage is the usage of "soul." More than likely if you hear someone use the word "soul" it triggers the concept of the religious idea of an immortal soul that goes on to an eternal state. This is a problem when discussing say ancient Greek philosophy when "soul" is used to describe levels of anime, or movement. Other ways its used is simply to ascribe the part of something which gives its non-physical essence. If you were to dig deep enough in the usages there's probably some level of overlap, but the same time the word does bring in some baggage that might disrupt the meaning in the piece of which it is used.
Another problem is people often use terms without having a precise definition in mind as to what they mean. Or they have a working definition that for works except for a few extreme cases, and those extreme cases make discussions interesting. Words like this include "life," "disease," and "abnormality."
One solution that can be used is to simply create new terminology. Then you have the joy of having to define your terms, and even then its not accessible to other people who haven't digested and adopted your phraseology.
In summation of this choppy rant... "English is a beautiful language for the poets, horrible for anything technical."
