Big, impressive words

I love words. Good words that mean something. Me like words. Ugh.

I like to use large words both in conversation and in text. I’m very much a fan of words that are either on their deathbed or truly obsolete, in addition to words that are just too big and/or odd for people to use on a regular basis.

My current favorite word is succumbs. I was first exposed to the word via the title of R.E.M.’s first video collection, R.E.M. Succumbs. It’s got a great feel and makes me think of someone falling into a huge pit.

What’s your favorite big, impressive word? -pm

It means: Bitter or irritating in tone or manner.
