Verbosity is the ability, limited in the general population, to utilize words which may be archaic, lengthy, and in the English language are more often than not based in Latin. Quite often, the phrases used in such a manner are synonymous with much more succinct forms. In addition to the expansive vocabulary utilized, prose which is deemed 'verbose' will quite often feature parenthetical phrases in unusual frequency, as might be found in scientific journals or university textbooks. Though accepted in academic contexts for its ability to explain, in great detail, concepts which may seem rather complex to the average layperson, the overuse of excessive verbosity will often cause common folk, especially those who might be afflicted with the neurological disorder known as Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), to lose interest in the concepts being explained, and thus the knowledge they might gain would be lost to them. Moderation, therefore, is the key to the proper usage of verbosity.

It's good for padding English essays, and there's a type of thread on 4chan that shows up every once in a while where people talk like that for the lulz.
