Liternoti

Created by: Nuwanda

Pronunciation: lit-er-NOT-ee

Sentence: Margeau fancied herself as part of the literati, and tried joining book clubs she found through Mensa Yahoo Groups (which, in a remarkably un-genius-like approach, were open for anyone to join). She belied her intelligence, though, when she would lapse into the first person when describing the plot of, say, Anna Karenina. "I was in such despair that throwing myself under the train seemed like my only option," she would intone passionately, only to see all her book club comrades come alive with the realization that she was a liternoti rather than a literati.

Etymology: Literati(literary intelligentsia) changed to incorporate "not"
