Word of the day: Inkhorn

Inkhorn is Dictionary.com’s word of the day today. It means pedantic, which describes someone who’s an obnoxious showoff about their knowledge and is overly concerned with unnecessary details. Pedantic is a very pedantic word, which is unfortunate because it so accurately describes so many people we all have to deal with every day. But now inkhorn can describe those whose ramblings clog up email inboxes and make meetings and calls go long.
