I think there are gradients of wizardry, not just all or nothing
you can be 60% wizard, and getting more wizardy
or maybe less wizardy

a person who doesn't get laid very often is closer to a wizard than a normie

People who use long and fancy synonyms for simple words often do so solely as an attempt to obfuscate their message and seem smarter than they actually are, but in doing so they are making their message less clear, and that's not an effective form of communication. People who do this think they're the only ones who do this, but I've seen it time and time again from English majors. Awkwardly shoehorning GRE vocab into your writing looks bad and it doesn't fool anyone.

646 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9104 01:32

Some people just love language... you can tell when someone's just learned a new word and want to show off, but I like speaking to people with big vocabularies, especially with broad accents. People maybe often do do it to sound smarter, but sometimes a less common word is more precise, or has nicer connotations, or is just better alliteratively ^___^

651 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9104 21:19

tbh i sound like this fairly often because i cba to remember which of the synonyms is normal, just put the first word that comes to mind out there and if anyone hasn't memorized the dictionary well fuck em

and there does come a point where it's not worth worrying about whether you sound condescending because you are using words people don't know or sound condescending because you are using plain language, because some people are determined to shit on you no matter what

652 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9104 21:27

>>651 Yeah, sometimes the effort isn't to pick a fancy word and sound smart, it's to pick a simpler word and not get called a university wanker

654 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9104 21:39

You're missing the point. I didn't say vocabulary is bad in general, it's just that some people try to use words they don't really understand, so it seems awkward and forced, and you can tell that they're doing it to sound smarter than they really are. If you actually know a word, then by all means use it.

You can tell when someone is using a word they don't really understand though.

658 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9104 23:37

Complicated language is often about the writer. It's self-centered. YOU want people to know that YOU are smart. YOU want to express yourself in a way that makes the most sense to YOU, even if it makes less sense to your audience. YOU want to show off what you learned over the years, even if no one else cares.

Simple language is about prioritizing the listener over the speaker. Try to make the message as easy for them as possible. The point of communication should be ensuring that the audience understands.

It's not condescending, it's about efficiency. People might be able to understand a 5,000 word essay from a very articulate person who likes to show off their personal lexicon, but a 500 word essay with easier-to-digest words is preferable because you get the same message across with less time and effort for the reader.

659 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9104 23:52

Unless there's actual information in the 4,500 words you're throwing away. There often is.

660 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9105 00:39

But you can condense that same info into fewer words. Most of the time, anyway. Old school media like TV and books used to try and make things as long as possible, because they didn't have much content, and wanted to drag it out as they could in order to meet some minimum page or time length, such as 300 pages, or 30 minutes for an episode.

Now? Things are different. There's so much media that nobody has time for that shit. Too many posts on social media timelines to read everything. Instead of having a small amount of content and trying to make it as long as possible, you have a lot of content and need to try and make it as brief as possible.

came across a youtube channel about traditional life from a family of people who are claiming to live more traditional lives

they have enough views to make money from youtube, and they also have an amazon affiliate thing and an etsy store and an ebook and a pinterest page

do they not see the irony

664 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9105 06:56

There's no irony. All those things you mention are superficially modern. Etsy us just another face of the idea of a marketplace which has been around for millenia. They're (I'm assuming) using their time and effort to produce crafts and artisanal goods. The only thing is the marketplace they sell it at isn't a physical one. This is partially out of necessity and partially out of convenience. All of the things you listed that are supposed to run counter to living a "traditional life" are updated formats of preexisting things. Saying "they use the internet so that invalidates the fact that they are living traditional lives" while they are in effect artisans living off their product and physical work is absurd. More importantly how is their family structure? What is their outlook on life? What values do they put emphasis on? These are much more important things to look at than when evaluating them than "well they have a Pinterest account" and other things that are essentially modern wallpaper on age old concepts.

>>658 There's more to language than communication and efficiency! I'm reminded of that Fry & Laurie Tricky Linguistics video again. I appreciate when a writer has faith that I have read a book before and doesn't need to spoonfeed me, but we agree it's obvious and annoying when a fancy word is forced and misused. But, I don't believe it's always as forced as you imply, I don't think that's why people become writers. Wait, after I typed that I realised maybe you weren't talking about books, when you say "writer" are you talking about online journalists? Cos that's different, those guys are nincompoops

I keep going to look up some english set phrase in japanese and finding out that there's no concise translation or similar-meaning idiom(but there often is one in chinese, weirdly enough) and the best way to describe that thing is by just literally describing it

examples I've had recently:
"benefit of the doubt" - best translation is basically the definition = (証拠ないから)有利に解釈 = judge(someone) favorably (because there is no evidence)
"middle of nowhere" - best translation = 人里離れた which also just means "far away from human habitation"

I suppose a lot of times that is more like trying to translate cliche for cliche than really getting at the thought behind what was said. The entire thing can become contentious to say the least.

For instance, "middle of nowhere" can be meant with contempt for rural areas and this might be better expressed as ど田舎 despite referring to actual habitation.

If your significant other treats you like shit, it's accepted that you'd break up with them. If your friends treat you like shit, you stop being friends, or at least don't hang out as often.
