Compleat incomplete explanation

Yesterday I played in the Mixed BAM in D.C. It's been years since I last entered the event -- I'd forgotten what it could be like. Near the end of the first session I opened 1 and had the following auction:

W
N
E
S
1
P
2NT
3
X
5
6
P
P
P

When RHO asked about my alert of 2NT I explained it as an "Artificial game-forcing raise."

6 was cold. 7 would have been a profitable save.

After the deal the gentleman on my left complained that my explanation was incomplete. How should I have described it? Apparently as an artificial game-forcing spade raise. Live and learn.
