Academic Word of the Day!
So I’m going to compile a list of ‘academic’ type words I think should be struck out of the lexicon. Because it’s fun.
First word to be banned:
Origin: mid 19th century: from Latin masturbat- ‘masturbated’, from the verb masturbari, of unknown origin
Why I Hate It: it’s usually used by an academic who is denigrating someone else, when in fact they are engaging in pointless rhetoric thats more like a simulation of humping a wheelie bin than making a legitimate point.
Let’s blame Lacan for this one.
