The habit of all things to subside.
The over use of one word really gets to me.
To strike with force.
Connotations: to compress, to pressure.

So when some asshat says he was 'impacted' by some event, I have to wonder how it compressed or pressured him. And it only leaves me with the desire to impact his face with my fist.
I use some of these words in casual conversation, does that make me come across as a douche?

Acting as if you're better than others.
serendipity (?s?r?n?d?p?t?)

the faculty of making fortunate discoveries by accident
No, it just makes you pedantic.

A fondness for the use of big or rarely used words.

>Implying all "pressure" is physical


1: the continuous physical force exerted on or against an object by something in contact with it.

2: the use of persuasion, influence, or intimidation to make someone do something.

Just sayin' as an fyi.

Also the second definition of "impact" as a verb is:

have a strong effect on someone or something.

Nigga you in a definition thread. get real

If you're using....

>satiate, unequivocal, sanctimonious, catharsis, diatribe, despodent, consternation, acquiesce, or androgynous, serendipity, or supercilious.

Then you just have a good vocabulary.

If you're using the even more obscure words in this thread then you're probably coming off as pretentious.

If you're using niggardly, then you're probably 12.


>A fondness for the use of big or rarely used words.

That's not what pedantic means.

Pedantic means that you like to impress people with your knowledge of facts; but you have no understanding of the relevance or importance of said facts.

no thanks, neckbeard faggot
Dictionary.com's word of the day today!
Discourse (noun): written or spoken communication or debate

Good-tier usage: use to distinguish between different discourse communities
Distinguish (verb): recognize or treat (someone or something) as different

God-tier usage: use this correctly instead of the plebian overuse of the word "differentiate"

It means that you have a good vocabulary. If you're not going out of your way to ham-fistedly shove those words into your sentences, and you actually use those words normally, then you probably just have a good grasp of the language and mean to convey things more precisely and accurately than most people. The people who think you're douchey for that are people who 1. don't read and 2. think you're just trying to show off. And the people who think you're showing off when you use words beyond a second-grade vocabulary are people who can't imagine a person speaking above a second-grade level without going out of their way to do so.

In other words, you're surrounded by imbeciles.
This are the ones i hadn't heard before, but i'm a beaner.
