Comment of the year – “sesquipedalian grandiloquence”
In the post Am I thick?, which is about a newly published report on “new technologies of awareness”, David Manners (pictured left) wonders why he struggles with the terms used.
‘The Baron’ replies:
It’s maybe not completely meaningless, but I think he’s trying to make it sound much more cryptic via sesquipedalian grandiloquence. The music hall presenters of yore would be proud.
“Sesquipedalian grandiloquence” – I love it. That sets the mark, I reckon.
Unless, of course, you can do better… as Esther used to say.
