The guild has an argot that they use for communication in public and secret. One can’t take an overheard conversation as meaning exactly what was said in the common tongue.

Personal Commentary:

Ah, this one’s on many of the lists, you’ll probably see it in literature, it can be used to adjust the vocabulary of a NPC, it helps with faction building, so many uses! It’s definately a neat word for how it could affect your game.
