    I Evidence Absolute Correspondence With That Exposition.

    Why yes I concur completely. Individuals exacerbating the complexity of their communications by employing egregiously obfuscatory verbiage must be ostracized post haste.

    Big Words

    I love big words. They are sexy. I actually have a shirt that says Big Words are Sexy. (You can guess where the word "Big" is placed.) But it's all in the delivery. You can tell when the snazzy words flow naturally from the tongue or if someone's just using...

    Yup

    I kind of understand if you are going somewhere and want to appear smarter due to the more intelligent crowd that will be there, but don't do this randomly with people you see all the time who know your actually a dumbass. My mom does this all the time, she will hear a word that...

    Big Word Alert

    I don't mind people that use big words, in fact I love big words; but if you use them to make others feel stupid...then shame on you.

    we were always told by our English teacher that the worst thing you can do in an essay is come across as pretentious, or misuse words because you do not fully understand their meaning. longer words do not necessarily describe something in a way that short words cannot, they just...

    Empty Vessels Make The Most Noise

    Remember the military acronym "KISS"? Keep It Simple,Stupid. There's nothing stupid about simplicity. The most elegant solutions are often the simplest. The essence of language is communication. If you're using five-dollar words where nickel and dime ones are...

    Sometimes You Should.

    Sometimes the 'big word' is the more accurate word for the situation. Although I do agree that people who mis-use big words to appear smart are quite annoying.  I guess it's all in the intent, I am more annoyed with people who use the same word over and over...
