One of my favorite TV sesquipedalians: Boyd Crowder from Justified.

Who is your favorite sesquipedalian?

And for those who might need a bit more convincing about why it's important to build a good vocabulary, like the occasional cynical teenager from Canada, here are 3 good reasons:

The best definition of Empathy I ever came across was 'gauging'. The larger your vocabulary is the better you can understand the situation in whatever way it's presented to you, and the better you area at targeting your responses to be comprehended by your audience.

COMPOSITION GAME:

MAKE SENTENCES using the words from /WARP EVA2 AND /WARP SESQUIPEDALIAN and compete for PRIZES/POINTS.

RULES:

Points:

1) Each word from the SAT deck (/warp eva1, /warp eva2) are worth 5 points each
2) Each word from the GRE deck (/warp sesquipedalian) is worth 10 points each
3) Each letter from FLORIST or PHLOX (warp vp) is worth 1 point each
* Each word is worth the same amount of points even if you use it more than once in a sentence, but you have to have the loot for it. You can't use the same sword as each must be in its own item frame.

Composition Types:

1) Sentence: 3 words minimum
2) Paragraph: 5-10 sentences, 5 words minimum
3) Short Story: 1000 words maximum, 20 words minimum

Competition:
1) You need at least 2 other ppl to enter alongside you (so get your friends to play)
2) Find a panel of judges (at least 3 but an odd number)
3) Compose in game using item frames for swords you want points and signs for words/letters you don't have loot for - using a sign will not gain you points.
4) Use signs for punctuation
5) For games where the players are not invited to "crack the code" put signs at the beginning/end of row with the entire sentence.
6) Make sure everyone who entered has all their sentences, paragraphs, and/or short stories complete on claimed property for evaluation when asking for judges to judge
7) Put each person's location, preferably with screenshots of their work, and their actual sentence/paragraph/story on the forum
8) When all previous tasks are done let the judges know, they can grade in the responses
9) The judges compare the # of points a word is worth vs. your use of it and may give you full or partial credit
10) Judges each paste a "grade" for each person per category, and whoever has the most points wins.

Feel free to run a game, it's like playing chess; get other players to play against you!
Consider paying people to judge,
Good luck!
