Derived from "Lexiphanicism," which means: "The use of pretentious words, language, or style."

A lexifascist, then, is an asshole who corrects others' language. Rather than let slip a mispronounced or misused word, the lexifascist pounces with a correction. Usually this is done with an uppity attitude.
Dude, it's not "pneumonic," it's "mnemonic." (this would only work in writing)

"Did you really just say "incognitoly?" How about "surreptitiously" instead?

The 2nd was me, but in my opinion I'm exempted from being a lexifascist by the fact that it was a made up word.
