A variant on the word "verbiage" (meaning verbosity) that typically refers to written, official text.

From a recipient point of view, verbage refers to the "word garbage" of form letters, websites, and other official correspondence that is by nature impersonal.

From a business point of view, verbage refers to the word choice, grammar, and writing style of text for public reading. Particular word choice and structure is often discussed in a committee setting before official text is published.
Sally: "What does the letter say?"
John: "Oh, it's just a bunch of verbage. They didn't hire me."

"Paul,
I think we need to adjust the verbage I highlighted on page two. It might present a legal liability for us."
