Blawgletter likes big words, and we cannot lie. 

Senior Circuit Judge Bruce M. Selya of the First Circuit shares our enthusiasm for sesquipedalia.  How do we know?  His latest foray, just today, includes "encincture", "aegis", "chiaroscuro", "lollygagged", and "condign".  Torres v. Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, No. 06-1771 (1st Cir. Apr. 4, 2007).  His Honor sprinkled an earlier opinion — on arbitragation — with "adscititious", "asseverational", "jejune", and "vecordious".  Cytyc Corp. v. DEKA Products Ltd. Partnership, 439 F.3d 27 (1st Cir. 2006).

He did go to Harvard, you know.
