          Verbose using or expressed in more words than are needed
          Obviate to avoid or prevent
          lexicographical (because it's a double dactyl)

          And I'm sure there's more. God, there's so many more. But "verbose" and "obviate" are some of my favourites.

Excellent - Very good of its kind; eminently good.
Oomph - Personal charm or magnetism; glamour OR sex appeal.
Bazinga - This isn't a real word but it's used by Dr. Sheldon Cooper off of the hilarious sitcom The Big Bang Theory. Bazinga is a catchy phrase that accompany clever pranks. For example: I just replaced your toothpaste with denture cream. Bazinga!

It's pretty much a new way to say, 'in your face', 'gotcha '. I just like using it when I'm around friends who know the show.
