Some people like word play, either because they like what they mean or the fact that they're big giant words. Here are some of mine.

Periphery
Asunder

What are some of yours? :D

no seriously @Deuteronomy I can not remember which thread it was, but one night some of us gals were being silly and playing with big words..........
"Antidisestablishmentarianism"
was one that was used, well I'm not one to know many big fancy words (in fact a lot of times reading stuff here, esp in BDF, I have to do word searches to know what is being talked about:LOL:)
SO I finally said
"Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious"

I know......
but I didn't know what it meant, so when I typed into google to define "balderdash" it gave the definition, then on the side column the ads for the game came up:LOL:

I'm learning A LOT of new words thanks to CC:LOL:

Pulchritudinous is one of my favorites just because of the definition.

My dear, your pulchritude is beyond belief!

*Date walks out and slams door*



To me there are so many troll words designed to obscure meanings that I much enjoy. Causes one to be a tad "felicitous" at times ;)

kind of like a private joke


Of course in Christian college (I use that term loosely) I actually disagreed with professors being too verbose. It's fun in jest or if you knew someone spoke that way but I'm against using it in a belittling manner or being too "dusty" about doctrine...which is what an Eschatalogical symposium seemed to me. I got what they were talking about but for some reason using the "verbiage" they did bothered me as I just couldn't figure how the majority of students would even know what they were talking about.

I just like words :p



There's a cool book called "P" is for Pterodactyl that is worth a look. Would be a great 5-6th grade teaching tool or even a college required book that I would have if I ever taught pedagogy or education in general.

English is just so odd.

I enjoy a word that's not appropriate to say on a Christian forum. So I won't say it here. :)
