1. the tendency to write abnormally long sentences with heavy punctuation after reading a novel by Charles Dickens

2. the tendency to write or speak in a way similar to how the narrator or characters wrote or spoke in a piece of entertainment you recently experienced
if you'd rather not read a long and rambling novel, you can usually experience the Charles Dickens effect by watching Gilmore Girls: after watching it, you may find that you have the abnormal ability of speaking inhumanly fast and dishing out comebacks so witty and tactful that they should be against the law.
