-contesting the argument on emotional grounds, or
-contesting semantics within any particular supporting point of the argument, especially if done so before hearing the conclusion of the thesis.
2. an internet troll who posts on philosophical discussion forums.
"Hey Vanessa. How was philosophy club?"
"You know. The normal. We had a good discussion going about free will vs determinism until this philosophi-troll started harping on about how the bible says God gave us free will."
The incorrect term for someone who loves words.
The lingui- prefix comes from the word linguistic, but there is no basis to make this determination when fusing the word linguistics with the suffix -phile.

"Man. I just LOVE words. I'm a linguiphile."
"If you REALLY loved words, you'd know the word is "logophile
", you fucking tool
