Because boolean algebra was already a thing and it was symbolic
in nature. So making it wordy would probably seem a bit odd,
maybe childish to some people. It'd be like writing arithmetic
expressions like this...
1 plus 1 equals 2
If you can understand why people wouldn't want to write
arithmetic expressions like that, surely you can understand why
some people wouldn't want wordy boolean expressions?
