This video is on why not to attempt a counterveilance of hyper-optimal perspicacity with pretentious verbosity. In other words why not to try to use big words to impress your audience. One they're really hard to remember and to say. Two, who needs them. Are you really trying to impress your audience with big words? If so, what is it that's missing from your presentation or how you feel about your presentation that leads you to think that you need to impress your audience with big words? Your audience doesn't want to be impressed by big words. Remember what your audience wants. They want to feel that their time has been well spent and they want to get something important or something of value out of your presentation. In order to hear your message your audience needs to hear the words that relay that message. Use words that will make that audience hear it clearly, hear it simply and hear it so that they can understand it and remember it. You're exactly as smart as you need to be. You don't need to be any smarter than you are. You are the expert. You are the one who is delivering that presentation. Use English words that will get the point across as clearly and simply and memorably as you can.
