Rather than spend the money to add to my collection of dictionaries (favourite being a 1950s New English Reference, with a short but excellent section on grammar), I decided to study the lexicon of Cimode, in which there are, sadly, only a few words and phrases which turn up with monotonous regularity. These include :

"prepackaged" (extra syllables optional, at users request)
"BS" (the long-form "BULLSHIT" has recently made an appearance, so top
marks there)
"ignorant"
"idiotic"
"incoherence"
"epidermic" (unusual usage; tread carefully)
"barking dogs" (oft. in combination with "Bob Badour" or simply "Bob")
"contemptuous"
"hypocrisy" (in various spellings)
"hypocrite" (in various spellings)
"mental deficient"
"mentally impaired"
"damn"
"practical" (typical usage: "how practical")
"arborescence" (well and truly out of left field that one, if you'll
pardon the pun)

Recent additions have taken on a somewhat darker tone :

"racist" (multiple spellings available)
"xenophobic"
"fascist" (multiple spellings available)
"overlord"

Note that these words may be combined in pretty much any order to produce new-yet-old terms. Received on Mon Jun 19 2006 - 19:09:59 CDT
