Hm. Funny Word It Is…‘Sesquipedalian’

Means ‘a person who uses long words’ it does.

Based on its literal meaning of ‘a foot and a half long’ it is.

From the Latin ‘sesquipedalis’ it is.

Also used in respect of speeches it is.

That was a ‘sesquipedalian’ speech = an excessively long speech.

Hm. The owner of this blog can be prone to sesquipedalian posts sometime he can.
