Autofault

Created by: mweinmann

Pronunciation: aw - toe - fawlt

Sentence: Jim was an autofault specialist. No matter what anyone said, he would contradict or correct the statement. Moreover, he had something negative to say about everyone. I know he would really criticize this sentence since it is not clever and contains no interesting story. He is already critizing my lack of originality in illustrating my Verbotomy word today. I will wait for his comments below and just try to ignore them.

Etymology: Automatic (to operate independently of thought control (involuntary), Acting or done as if by machine; mechanical) + Fault (the quality of being inadequate or falling short of perfection)
