Welcome to the world’s most prestigious institution of higher learning and tactical sesquipedalian studies. This is, with  Also known as the Online School of Big Words for Grunts and Other Knuckledraggers (OSBWGOK). Here we know words there may be no point knowing. Here we pursue lexiphanic excellence.

Oh, damn.

Grunts: Lexiphanic. lex·​i·​phan·​ic | \ ¦leksə¦fanik \

Lexiphanic is the trait of somebody who uses bombastic or pretentious language. It apparently comes from the title of a dialogue that was composed by the Greek writer Lucian of Samosata (first century AD). See also redondite, bombastic, pretentious, and sesquipedalian (all excellent words in their own right!)

Words mean things! It’s very important to understand them. Crucial even.
