I highly doubt that. Are you by chance "outside" the US? Of course there is irony and then there's just being a smartass. But the question still remains, how would would YOU say the equivalent of "airspeed alive" using your apparently higher grasp of plain English? And nobody says, "let's go aviating." And one last thing. As a controller this "jargon" as you call it, is designed to keep things simple, succinct and to the point. Plain English is used as a last resort.
