Fancy Words

I'm getting pretty sick of words that don't live up to my expectations. Some of them fancy words promise a helluva lot more than they deliver, and it's driving me nuts.

Take 'tabernacle' for instance. Four syllables with a rich clunky resonance, but what is it really? A box. A pesky little box.

Then there's 'circumlocution'. Five syllables, and a posh Latin spelling, yet it's bullshit, plain and simple.

I'm sick of getting conned by fancy words. It's doing my neurocranium in.
