This thread has already increased my wordage, and decreased my remaining lifetime.

I always have trouble deciding whether they are doing it to appear perspicacious or because they are using the word which best describes what they are trying to say.

Time for everyone to give me the thumbs up, so I can get points too.
Please do this before you go back to your billet.

Gives me a reason to pull the dictionary. Perspicacious means having a ready insight into and understanding of things.

Only when they do it behind my back.

So incredibly ostentatious! It lessens my sanguine temperament.

Learning more big words is a nice eucatastrophe to this post...

Eucatastrophe is a sudden and favorable resolution of events in a story; a happy ending.

If I don't have to say it. I have a great reading vocabulary and understanding. I don't get to share much where I live in South Central Pennsylvania except through writing.

I am going to escheat your word.

Escheat means the reversion of property to the state, or (in feudal law) to a lord, on the owner's dying without legal heirs

@sweetcharlotte or to commandeer.

Very sagacious on your part.

Sagacious is having or showing keen mental discernment and good judgment; shrewd.

Indubitably!

Indubitably- No definitions found for this word.

@sweetcharlotte ummm, it is an old-fashioned word but indubitably a real one....and look, used correctly in a sentence!

I'm insouciant about this!!

Insouciant is showing a casual lack of concern; indifferent.

I love that word! Thank you!

As long as people know how to spell the word and use it correctly... I rather enjoy it! But they better know what the word means!

They do now.
