we all know that person
who uses pretentious words as a means to impress
which generally results in the opposite effect
like when someone uses the word ‘grandiloquent’ in a sentence.
part of speech: adjective
origin: latin, late 16th century
When I heard the salesman’s grandiloquent speech, I knew he was trying to make the car deal sound better than it actually was.
“i am trying to impress myself. i have yet to do it.”
