"special words or expressions used by a profession or group that are difficult for others to understand."

Imagine if you were a person reading a newspaper. You will probably understand quite a bit but... then you find an article about neurosurgery, they talk about different parts of the brain and very medical specific terms that a lot of natives just wouldn't understand unless they were studying medicine.

This is jargon.

The same can be for any specializes area:-
