We've all done it. Dropped a multi-syllable smash hit of a word in conversation despite having no real idea what it actually means, in the hope of sounding like a dictionary-faced genius.
But rarely have any of us done it on live TV, or tripped up over a word that even Family Guy's Peter Griffin had a rudimentary understanding of.
Rarely have any of us done a Phil Neville.
While analysing Man Utd's victory over Hull in the EFL Cup semi-final, Yung Neville began to describe the resurgence that the home side had in the second half.
"Well they came out in the second half and played with a better tempo. I think the boys Mata and Smalling said it then - they weren't happy with the first half performance. It was too slow and pedantic..."
Hmm, yes we agree. Slow and pedantic…
Gary, hand him a dictionary, will you?
