Gliberation

Created by: Nuwanda

Pronunciation: glib-er-A-shun

Sentence: Monique knew that being right wasn't always worth the eye-rolling exasperation she induced in everyone around her when she belabored a point until all her would-be opponents had given up arguing. However, she did find the gliberation of those moments a little intoxicating, gliberating even.

Etymology: combination of glib and liberation, with the bonus of getting berate in there, too.
