I think it's probably impossible to describe it more clearly than the 
article, as physics is expressed in math, not speech ... and when you 
get beyond the basics, you can't be more descriptive than a "parameter 
called the fine structure constant, or alpha, which dictates the 
strength of the electromagnetic force" without using math.
