Oh yeah, and one more thing--
dilettante = 5 points
broughten = -5 points (street slang - hard to tell appropriate usage, so docking points - open to appeal, however. Sorry!)
nonpretentious = 25 points
an even 100 points, for correctly using the word in an actual communication - something I had considered nigh impossible, unless discussing history
another 100 points, for correctly using a blatantly fictitious word correctly in an actual communication. Stunning work. Probably not something that'll catch on - but wow, nevertheless.
grandiolquent = 20 points
Pneumoniaultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis = score pending
- awaiting relevant use in an actual communication - now this I gotta see!!! (the word: 'Silicosis' can be used for the exact same purpose)
Total: 245 points (an incredible debut by Sandworm88, who pulls into the lead from the starting gate and is moving at a stupendous rate
Hey, and thanks for the greeting!
