Long words

Don’t actually read this entry. Skip on to something else.

Some of my favorite long words include dithyrambic, exothermal, disambiguate, ostentatious, loquacious, and confabulate. In business, we frequently hear phrases such as de minimis, the word “architect” used as a verb (a vile neologism, to be sure), discussions of emolument, and other variegated farrago and miscellany.

I inscribe this with stoic fervor solely to determine if I can unduly influence The Blog Readability Test, which previously rated this blog at the Junior High School level, a lachrymose result which induced acrimonious umbrage.

EDIT: No effect? Still Junior High? I didn’t know any of these words in Junior High. Feh.

    Pregnancy has caused me to make up NEW words.

    My recent favorite is OUT-ternal (the opposite of internal). Makes perfect sense to me!

    The other day referring to a restaurant in Menlo Park that I’ve been wanting to try is called “The Left Blank”… I mean “The Left Bank”. An honest mistake to make…. right?
