** Additionally, the Archive, a single human whose purpose is to be the physical containment of the entirety of humankind's body of written knowledge. This includes everything that has been written about the usage of magic. While a normal human with no inherit gifts, she is still probably the most adept magic caster on earth, knowledge that doubtlessly includes not only how to cast any spell, but how they work, and why they work.

* The Bob Howard[=/=][[TheLaundrySeries Laundry]] stories by Creator/CharlesStross are *made* of this trope. The magic in this setting is based on mathematics and computer science -- Alan Turing invented the local {{Magitek}} -- and it reads like a cross between MIT's 6.001 and Abdul Alhazred.

* {{GURPS}}: Thaumatology has a perk that allows your character to spout an endless amount of meaningless but authentic sounding nonsense at the drop of a hat.

*''Literature/JourneyToChaos'': Annala tries to explain magic theory or monster behavior to her friends, Revas and Oito, but because she always uses technical terms, they don't get it. Instead they rely on Eric for the LaymansTerms.



* ''TabletopGame/ArsMagica'': In spades. There are arts, mystery cult initiations, exotically named spells, different types of vis, and a dozen or more exotic traditions to speak about in character. The magic rules are so closely linked to the in-setting magic concepts that it becomes difficult not to talk in magi babble.

** This is underselling it a tad, frankly: if you took all the MagiBabble out, you would be left with a fairly short visual novel.

*''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' has a bit here and there; some young mages wandering around Stormwind chat about their studies in magi-babble terms (and drop some Ghostbusters references in the process), while Kalecgos gives us the following during the Dragon Soul raid; what it actually ''means'' is unclear, but it's a good excuse for another boss fight:
-->'''Kalecgos:''' The Focusing Iris within the Eye of Eternity may allow us to converge the magical matrix contained within the Dragon Soul!

* In the VisualNovel/FateStayNight x LightNovel/SwordArtOnline crossover fic, ''Fanfic/FateRevelationOnline'' more and more players slip into this as they are taught magecraft on a grand-scale.

* In ''Fanfic/OpeningDangerousGates'', Levy and Urahara have a discussion on how to take down a forcefield blocking the group's way. The other characters are incredibly confused by their magical terms and think they are talking in another language.

* Used in ''Webcomic/{{Unsounded}}'' by GadgeteerGenius Vienne [[http://www.casualvillain.com/Unsounded/comic/ch10/ch10_17.html here]], to demonstrate how she tricks the highly logical FunctionalMagic system into doing something completely unprecedented.
