word of the week... "bafflegab"

Posted by at 12:06 AM Read our previous post

It sounds like a made-up slang thing, I know . . .

  • Encarta Dictionary: “Nonsense. …. pretentious and obscure talk full of technical terminology or circumlocutions.”
  • Wiktionary: “Language whose purpose is to obscure, confuse, or mislead.”
  • “An informal pejorative term for fluent language that sounds impressive but confuses and confounds, and is often associated with politicians."
  • Worldwidewords: “Incomprehensible or pretentious verbiage.”
