However many words we know I've learned a lot more since I started visiting Ask.
ABSQUATULATE: To leave in a hurry. Or, as we used to say in Oz, "To shoot through like a Bondi tram." ANGSTING: Running around in circles as you bash your head against the wall. (I know, I know, it's hard to do both at the same time and that perpetuates the angst.) BELIEBER: 21st century teeny-bopper. BLOVIATE: Talk at length, esp. in an inflated or empty way. (as I'm doing here). MODERATOR: An Ask administrator whom angsting answerers angrily accuse when their acrimonious assertions are axed. OBJURGATE: To scold. SESQUIPEDALIAN: (noun) Somebody who uses words like sesquipedalian.
Then we have a few collective nouns, like a blur of Sasquatch or a warm presence of Virginias.
Then there's EricM's confession, that I'm still trying to work out. He said, "I'm a pain in the Ask."
