Alternative to Exponential

How many of the population really understand what is meant when politicians, advisors and health experts use the term "exponential". I am a retired engineer aged 67 and the last time I used the word in a serious manner, i.e. it's actual meaning ,was at college. Walk out your office and randomly ask 10 folk in the street what the difference is between linear and exponential growth. Scot Gov communications have been throughout - brilliant, but that word just flies over 90% of population head in terms of real meaning.

Why the contribution is important

Unless comms messages are understood by the vast majority in the simplest of terms they are wasted.
