The ones I've heard are more inclined to use too many words, throwing them into sentences that don't need to be drawn out to sound "official". Too much Cops and Judge Judy.

"Impact" as a verb (apparently synonymous with "affect").

"Impactful." (It just goes from bad to worse.)

Hold on there Sherlock-I use words like plethora, chagrin, paradigm, etc. because I enjoy a broad and varied vocabulary.

I'm not some asshat who's biggest comeback is "Whatever".


Let's see: people that KNOW what the meaning of those words are and can use them in the proper context in a sentence are: Stupid.

People that CANNOT, DO NOT AND WILL NOT form a sentence and use those type of words are: Smart.

Am I the only one who finds somethin wrong with this picture?

BTW-As anyone who has read any of my posts here should realize, those are not words I try to fit into every sentence or conversation-but occasionally they are warranted.

You mean Snoop Dog doesn't have a PHD in wordsology?

People use those words to sound smarter? Man... my bad... I've been using bling bling to dumb my vocabulary down to the level of some of the members here. Here I find out I've been sounds all smart and shizzle.

How about easy word that stupid people use to prove they are stupid.

For example, this guy keeps e-mailing and says "I wont (should be want) to get something to eat." and also "I thank..(instead of think) that is a good idea".

At first I thought is was a typo, but when each and every e-mail contained this I was convinced he was not too bright. In fact, being from Virginia, this is sorta how he talked.

I saw an interview with the neighbor of a murder victim. He claimed that a "unanimous" caller let the Po-lice know about the alleged crime that took place on the before mentioned evening.

I think that's spelled "craptastic".



I like to use words and phrases like;

righteous indignation
erronious assumption
self absorbed
quantifiable

Why just the other day I said to this guy " My rightious indignation stems from the erronious assumption of that self absorbed asshat that his intelligence was quantifiable based on his vocabulary".


The guy I was talking to just looked at me like I was stupid.

"myself"

"Myself" is not a substitute for "I" or "me." Most people could drop "myself" from their vocabulary. Not only is it overused, it is often useless.

Other points...

The "t" in often is silent. The "l" in salmon is silent, too.

It is sad how many times I hear TV and radio personalities misuse the English language. I am refering to commentators and news types.
