In the seventeenth century, the Royal Society of London advocated for a rejection of imprecise language in scientific texts. Precision in language, they argued, can be achieved only after purging it of "ornamentation and emotive language" (Baugh and Cable 248). Thus, Royal Society members concluded that all figures of speech should be abandoned for pure and plain prose. Writers such as John Locke and Thomas Hobbes would later apply their ideas not merely to scientific language but all prose writing.
