Amazing Adjectives, Number Twelve!

How many times have you attended a conference or event expecting to hear a stimulating speaker only to be disappointed by discovering he is nothing more than a magniloquent bore?  Far too often, I’m afraid.  Alas.


\ mag-niluh-kwuh nt \, adjective;

  1.  speaking or expressed in a lofty or grandiose style; pompous; bombastic; boastful.
