~~~~~~ Transcript: ~~~~~~
My name is Sir Reginald Smith-Smythe-Smithe, and I am associate assistant professor of linguistics at the Pacoima Community College.
This evening I shall be lecturing on the proper use of English words in situations where one wishes to be perceived as wealthy, intelligent, or well-traveled.
This may come as a shock to the uninitiated, but anyone can achieve a high-level of social standing simply by peppering one’s speech with any of the following words:
Askance, Whom, Bucolic, Aplomb, Visage, Elucidate, Adroit, Acumen, Jejune, Obviate, Hegemony, Ennui, Taciturn, Fecund, Anathema, Egregious, Pejorative, Dilettante, Sobriquet, Miasma, Mellifluous, Corpulent, Nuptials, Zeitgeist, Schadenfreude, Obfuscate, Palimpsest, and Paradigm
As an adjunct, one may appear hyper-competent in culinary settings by ordering your meal using a phrase such as:
“I shall have the Heirloom Multi-grain Chipotle Croissant with the Beurre Blanc Aioli Artisanal Foam, and a side of Natural Organic Handcrafted Quinoa smothered in Arugula and Creamery Butter Fennel.”
This concludes this evening’s lecture on how to be perceived as wealthy, intelligent or well-traveled. In an upcoming lecture, I’ll be discussing the use of colours that may or may not exist in nature, such as:
Mauve, Ecru, Taupe, Seafoam, Wenge and Eburnian
