Both are very proficient at using words I've never heard of before. Since I consider myself moderately intelligent I must conclude that these words are made-up gibberish and not an indicator of any linguistic deficiency on my part.

I couldn't find a term for things that are less than the sum of their parts (cf. the usage of "gestalt" as "more than the sum of its parts"), so I made one up. Any better suggestions than "agestalt"?

Not really a fair question when smithee admits he does it. With DrG, you aren't really sure if she is or not.

Everything smithee writes is perfectly cromulent.

DrG's interesting turn of the tongue embiggens me. Hey-oh!

How the hell did it take more than 35 hours for a cromulent and/or embiggen post? I'm all skimble-skamble!

Philo- means "love", right? I'll use it in reviews when I need to make up a term for somebody really into a certain thing: ex. "The philorubik was really into solving puzzles..." Is there a "hate" equivalent? I could use that from time to time.

So someone who disliked randiness could be described as "misohorny"?
