    I am perplexed with the general consensus against the employment of an elaborate lexicon. It seems to me, an exorbitant proportion of this Plebeian society, make haste to antagonize as well as vilify those whose utilization of locutions carry a world of diverse expressions, each immaculately prepared for every magnitude.

    basically, I use words specifically, I dont throw them out because I feel like sounding pompous. 'Stringent' carries a world of different meanings when compared with 'Harsh'.

    I am also being facetious. Dont take me seriously.
    You have no idea how stupid i feel right now. I just wrote a 2000 word essay for English class and that paragraph alone makes my vocabulary look like crap.

    The trick is a thesaurus. I have a mac, so mine is automatically integrated to the search bar on the top right of my screen. I write out a sentence, then search for complicated sounding synonyms for each word.

    Guaranteed A+ in your next essay.

    EDIT: For extra points, make long strings of Alliterations using this method.

    Additional applaud awarded for assembling astounding Alliterations, all academic authorities are assured automatic amazement.

    I'm actually quite enthralled with this thread, so I do not wish to interject, however, shouldn't it be:

    Just curious that's all. Continue as you were, and fight the good fight for polysyllabic language Enlightenment.

    the difference between the two is the tense. "applaud" is past tense. in the context of his statement, was used correctly.

    although incorrect, I laud your attention to detail.

    Its similar to knowing what 'talk to you later' means but being confused by 'ttyl'.

    Actually, "plebs" were the common masses. "Plebeian" means having a common nature or of the masses.
