In the following flashback to an event from my college years, please imagine the first speaker as rather exasperated, and the second person sounding … well, frankly, exasperating.
Helen: Oh for God’s sake John, I’m fed up with all your pedantisism!
John: Actually, I think the word is pedantry.
Perhaps appallingly, that is an entirely true story.
Anyway, I suspect that alleged trait explains why I find this website so very amusing.
