I like big words. if someone uses one i don't know, i ask them what it means. But I try to use language that people understand, so depends on who I'm taking to and what about.

My favorite word however, is: Noodle.

i was watching Brooklyn's Finest a few minutes ago. i'm gonna keep saying "no doubt, man" like all the time now lol. i like new york swag for now.

big words are okay with me as long as i get the gist of what someone is saying.

William F. Buckley used to ask people the same question three different ways. I liked how annoyed he would get when they would give him the same answer. They were smart enough to know he was insulting their intelligence and quick enough to return the favor.

That kind of vocabulary is wonderful, it is all about how you use it.

Increasing your vocabulary is never a bad thing. I do agree with the others that using it just to sound superior or make your argument sound "more valid" is just annoying.
