linguista88 commented on the word highfalutin
My english prof used this word a lot to describe the tone of vocabulary in our essays.
linguista88 commented on the word shat

Haha.. My professor taught us this word in Latin class :)
linguista88 commented on the word dismal
Dismal is used a lot by Lewis Carroll in Hunting of the Snark and Alice Through the looking glass. I recognized it right away. Just though it was something worth mentioning.
