Recrement: A bodily secretion that is reabsorbed.
Example: saliva
Usage: Something that "makes your mouth water" (a crass, vulgar expression used by the common people) can be said to "induce an increment in your recrement."

The risk is that people will think you're talking excrement...

You can imagine what I'll be looking at and thinking about as I wander along the beach and paddle out to the break...

Sciolism: Superficial knowledge; a show of learning with no substantial foundation.

When someone with this disorder contradicts you, it's always fun to accept it gracefully with something like "I see. Well, I bow to your obvious sciolism" and then change the subject. On the off chance that someone else in the group gets it, you have just scored major points.

Plenty of that around. I´ll be sure to use it in my circle against someone.

Pentasyllabic, and other self-referential words, such as "short" and "self-referential" and "recherché".

Aww, why can't you use it? Someone called me that once. I pretended not to know what it meant, so he had to explain using an air diagram...
