Gulliver says of one of the lilliputians "who seemed to be a person of quality, made me a long speech, whereof i understood not one syllable." what might swift be satirizing here?

I think Swift might have been satarizing the very impractical academic scientists in Europe who seemed to pride themselves on not making sense to the average person.
