The use of "big" words in lieu of their "common" counterparts (often out of context) in a futile attempt to sound more intelligent. This technique is often used by liberal arts students when attempting to sound competent when talking about a subject that they have no clue about.
In a class room discussion about UrbanDictionary.com

Jill: Urban Dictionary's abominable nature not only proliferates the use of exiguous, diminutive, colloquial English, it actually bolsters and espouses it!

Jack: ya, and it gives us words like thesaurus rape to describe what you are doing!!
