Bigganerdy

Created by: silveryaspen

Pronunciation: big ah nerd ee

Sentence: Mr. Weisenhammer hit people over the head with big words. He greeted everyone with "Salutations" instead of 'Hello'. He would ask "What, is the current status of your overall, and general, phsysical and mental conditions"? rather than a simple 'How are you'? His largesse with words was really a largemess. It made you want to break his biggy-bank of big words. He thought they made him a big wig. Everyone else thought they made him a bigganerdy.

Etymology: BIGGER, NERD. Bigger - larger, more of, greater. Nerd - one who is excessively interested in using bigger technical, scientific words.
