Top Definition
Language that academics use to bamboozle and confuse poor, unsuspecting students. The language encorpourates long and technical words designed to display intelligence and knowledge of literary terms but all it really shows is that the author is an academic WANKER! Or A.D for short.
A.D- A knowledge of contextual information broadens ones analytical and probing skills that adds dimension to the concept of existential construct developed after World War One.
Student- I don't get it!
A.D- That's because it really doesn't mean anything and I could probably sum up my point in one sentence because it is so shallow and brief but I would rather confuse you with my extensive knowledge of fuck all!
Student- Aha! Academic Wankery!
