Pendant, n.

One who, by correcting others, gives himself (or herself) just enough rope by which to hang.
Bill: "That bloke's a total pendant."

Ben: "I think you mean 'pedant,' mate."

Bill: "I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant. BTW, is this noose too tight?"
