Uberloquitor

Created by: XMbIPb

Pronunciation: /ü-bər-lo-kwi-tor/

Sentence: I can’t even tell you what George and I drank over the weekend. Nor how much of it we drank. Neither remembers. All I can say is that Master George – and there’s no other way I can call him from now on – is a bloody genius! Despite a massive hangover and absolute lack of preparation, he managed to UBERLOQUITATE the entire board meeting into extending our contract for two (count’em – t-w-o) more years! I mean I was sitting there with my head feeling like a cracked egg shell, while Master George managed to pull a presentation full of “gestalt,” “zeitgeist,” “sine qua non,” “parallax,” and at least a dozen words all of which had at least one vowel with an umlaut. I love that guy!

Etymology: uberloquitor (n.), uberloquacious (adj.), uberloquitate (v.) ----- UBER- (fr. Germ.): over, beyond. [Recently replaced other such superlative prefixes as “super-“ and “ultra-“ (see: “ubergeek,” “uberhack,” “ubercool”)] LOQUI – (fr. Latin) to speak.

Dicktionary

karenanne

Created by: karenanne

Pronunciation: DIK shun air ee

Sentence: Arry Gant is such a dicktionary. He likes to use fancy words to obscure the true meaning of what he is really saying, while making it sound really important. Everything he says is technically true; it just comes off sounding a lot better than what really happened. For example, he told us yesterday that he went to an evening philosophy lecture on campus last Thursday, probably because he thought it would impress this really cute girl who hangs out with us a lot. I was getting tired of his B.S., so I called his bluff in front of her and asked him to tell us some things about it. He responded, "Well, it was so esoteric and arcane as to be virtually impenetrable. I only wish it had could have been less rarefied and more prosaic." The girl, whose intelligence he had vastly underestimated, responded, "So what you're saying is that the lecture was meant mainly for people who already have knowledge of the study of philosophy, and so you didn't understand anything the speakers were saying because you probably haven't taken any classes in it. You wish it had been way more simplified so you could have actually understood some of it. Is that right?" All he could say in response was, "Uhhhh...yeah, that's basically it," before slinking away, claiming that he had to "go do something very urgent and important."

Etymology: dick + dictionary
