Those native speakers
I attended a meeting these past few days and got the chance to learn a pinch to a bunch (depends on your hand size) new things:
The interesting word/phrase for today is BOILERPLATE.
But what does it mean?
The term “boilerplate” has been adopted by lawyers to describe those parts of a contract that are considered “standard language”.
The word has also come into use for pre-created form letters on the Internet for things such as issues to be broached by a politician based on an issue ad, requesting a cable network be added to a system by a cable or satellite operator, or a pre-written complaint about something such as a program, book, or video game opposed by a group which created the letter, along with online petitions. Usually the greeting and the body of the letter have been pre-written, requiring the person requesting the action to only type or sign his name at the end.
