Sesquipedalian


- Have a character be a sesquipedalian

+ if they become a sesquipedalian by getting hit over the head

++ if they just like using big words, but don't actually know what any of them mean

+++ if a very minor character comes along and has a conversation with this character

+++ + if neither of them know what they're talking about and their conversation makes absolutely no sense

+++ ++ if there's another character who DOES understand what their conversation is about

+++ +++ If this character acts as translator to any passersby


Definition of sesquipedalian: (of a word) polysyllabic, long.



This dare was posted on the NaNoWriMo forums for free use in your NaNoWriMo novel. I have compiled them all on this website, but I have not created them. While the original thread from which these dares have been taken may have been deleted for the yearly forum wipe, you can find the NaNo Dares thread(s) at http://nanowrimo.org, in the Reaching 50,000 forum.
