An impressive number of jargon terms. The website contains exactly 4 English jargon term, but I may be missing one: English Jargon. Jargon terms aren't popular in Scotland

Apparently the jargon terms are counted by some system called JargonRank.

I know that 'jargon' or 'jargoon' is street slang for fake jewellery, and is an alternative name for 'zircon'.
I wonder whether 'jargoon' might be Dutch in origin?
