Grandiloquence- Word of the day
a lofty, extravagantly colorful, pompous, or bombastic style, manner, or quality especially in language
Grandiloquence is derived from the Latin word loqui, meaning “to speak.” Grandiloquence comes (probably via Middle French) from the Latin adjective grandiloquus, which combines loqui and the adjective grandis (“grand or great”).The word is very similar in meaning to grandiloquence is magniloquence—and the similarity is not surprising. Magniloquence combines loqui with magnus, another Latin word meaning “great.”
