The provider of information in universities. If male elbowpatches are traditional (although you do get the occasional 'cool' one in jeans), if female either powersuits or dressing like a hippy. Results of a lecturer talking are as follows:

- roughly one paragraph of notes never to be used
- a quick nap
- a brilliant game of hangman usually more informative than the actual lecture.
"I need a nap before clubbing tonight."

"Yeh me too, which lecturer is it today?"

"Dr D, talking on female rights"

"Nap time it is!"

Being open and sharing becomes lecturing when you're talking to somebody who wasn't looking for your level of openness, which seems like hypocrisy. Like everyone else, the person you're told you're lecturing is a hypocrite too.
Stop lecturing me, I don't let my friends see my butt hurt in public, you're the butt hurt one!

An act of passing on information at one's leisure, and although it is meant to get through to one's head, it ends up pissing them off anyway.
"I hate it when my older brother lectures me. He treats me like I'm his son. I'm not dammit! Also, make sure you don't tell him what to do when he's driving; his ego shows when he's behind the wheel and he will lecture you to the max if you act like a backseat-driver even at the MOST MINOR situation."
