The most evident symptom of this is the word "trope" itself, which is not commonly used outside of this site -- it's only the [[http://wordcount.org/main.php 67,470th]] most frequent English word. That's behind [[BathroomStallOfOverheardInsults "privies"]] but ahead of [[NiceHat "milliners"]], just for reference.

Then, again, many foreign languages do not even have a translation for the word 'tropes'.

This, when combined to a tendency to apply SquarePegRoundTrope, is why some artists aware of us aren't exactly fond of the site. On the other hand, many artists are [[OneOfUs Tropers themselves]], and a number of our linguistic travesties are borrowed from industry jargon.

[[FromBadToWorse It gets worse]] for a tropers whose native language isn't English. They unawarely insert tropes into their conversations and receiving side usually not only simply have no idea what that phrase ''means'', but can't understand what did you just said AT ALL. And you can't just send them link to explain - they don't understand English, remember?

[[YouKnowYouReadTooMuchTVTropesWhen It seems to be not at all unusual]] for a {{troper}} to begin [[ConversationalTroping speaking tropinese]] in real-life situations that do not involve discussion of entertainment. This is apparently another way that TVTropesWillRuinYourLife.

Just For Fun or not, Your Mileage May Vary is still not a trope and should not be linked to for any reason.
This, when combined to a tendency to apply SquarePegRoundTrope, is why some artists aware of us aren't exactly fond of the site. On the other hand, many artists are [[OneOfUs Tropers themselves]], so YourMileageMayVary.
