I came across the word “sesquipedalian” today, and what a lovely word it is! It rolls off the tongue nicely and what’s more, it defines itself. What more could you want in a word?
Merriam-Webster defines the word as “having many syllables” (i.e. long), or “given to or characterized by the use of long words”. So it’s a long word for long words; I love that!
However, one must eschew obfuscation and espouse elucidation when electing to utilize sesquipedalian terms, otherwise egregious miscommunications may ensue. ;)
