It's "Talk Like a Pirate Day." In celebration, I'm going to talk like my pirate all day. Indeed, I'm going to use "the most accurate" word for everything and discuss important topics like homemade computers, codes and semiconductors.
It's not so much that he likes to use big words, it's more that he likes to enlist the aid of the most accurate language in order to communicate the unbiased truth. I'll probably strum my guitar, smoke my pipe and read some Thoreau. Some piece about "walks." Perhaps I'll take a walk - with my pipe.
If you too would like to celebrate The Pirate, consider using a few of these portmanteaus at your dinner table tonight in tribute to the mathlete.
