How are your perceptions of a person altered by the kind of language that they use? And how effective has it been, or is it, on you personally?


Big words doesn't make you smarter, but if they are used correctly, they can show your knowledge. I personlay love them, love to use them and love when people do introduce me to a new one. They make my life easier when I try to explain myself in foregin language, I just use one word instead the whole sentence.

verbosity is a fun skill to practice in certain company, other verbose individuals and those with a limited vocabulary. one because you can have weird conversations and the other you can confuse.

My first reply in months hello1

I am often accused of using too many "big" words, or inordinately flowery prose. Even while trying to simplify my language, I tend to be inappropriately verbose. There is a part of me, however, that revels in the correct use of an appropriate word. I really don't want to read "He liked the smell of her hair." I would much rather immerse myself in "The scent of her locks wove chains around his cock, forging a link that would forever tease his tortured mind with the aroma of her unbridled, debauched, desire."

Whether I use words correctly or not, (or use too many of them); it is an aspiration which reflects personal admiration for those who tickle my brain in the most wonderfully subtle ways. I hope someday to be able to wield words with accuracy, and clarity; not to appear intelligent, but to communicate richly.

Besides, despite what we all hear, Sometimes bigger IS better. (And longer is not bad either. ;-)

You know what is even more frustrating than trying to listen to someone who has a fantastic command of the English language and the multi-syllable words simply flow effortlessly from his or her mouth?

Try addressing a flock of fcktards, all of whom are over 30 years of age and none of whom, graduated high school.

Good luck with that.

I refuse to dumb myself down for anyone. I have a great vocabulary and I'm passionate about words and learning new words. I love it when people use a word I don't know and I have to look it up. The first adult book that I read contained a lot of words I didn't understand. I remember sitting with a dictionary and painstakingly looking up a word when I couldn't figure out what it was from the sentence structure. I try to incorporate new words and phrases into real life situations. I think that is the reason I love to write prose and poetry. I have been accused of being verbose on many occasions. And I don't give a flying feck about what people think of me.

Sorry I never answered this. I think the intelligence comes from bettering your vocubulary and improving yourself.

I have an attorney friend who loves the language and he's prone to grandiose verbosity.

For about the last 2 years, when he's been trying select cases in front of juries, he's played a little game which he, myself and two of our mutual friends concocted for him.

We all get together roughly once every few months for some brews and hand him a list of words to incorporate into his opening or closing remarks (whichever is easiest for him). All we ask is that he tape those remarks and play them back for us the next time we get together. Makes for some good laughs.

Some of those words have been:

phallic
fucktarded
gastrointestinal
extraterrestrial
masturbatory
rectal
scrotal

Some day I need to cop one of those tapes and translate it for anyone who might wish to read what a glib bastard he is. He is still working on fucktarded, but he's used the other words above.

That's hilarious! Would make for some interesting courtroom proceedings I'm sure. (wonders what kind of case would allow for the usage of the word extraterrestrial?? lol)

Hey Jeff...you should know me by now...I just had to view this as a challenge...

A Lush Forum Poem

I knew we were doomed as soon as we started,
When she asked me if I was fucktarded,
She would never view my massive erection,
As her symbol of phallic perfection,
Or be the subject of her erotic dreams,
Nor call my name during her masturbatory screams,
Yes, I certainly took it hard,
When she called me a freakin' rectal fuctard,
Her tossing me aside was the final dig,
Like scrotal waste from a castrated pig,
My distress was certainly gastrointestinal,
Like being eaten alive by an extraterrestrial,
I just try to maintain my decorum,
And hope I don't run into her in the Lush forum.

"Does verbosity = intelligence?" I guess it depends on what your definition of intelligence is. To me it doesn't equal intelligence. What's the point of being repetitious in trying to convey something that has already been said? A waste of words!!
