Re: GAME: Word of the Day (WOTD)

Pronunciation: /ˈsʌɪəlɪst/
A person who pretends to be knowledgeable and well informed.

Early 17th century: from late Latin sciolus (diminutive of Latin scius ‘knowing’, from scire ‘know’) + -ist.



Your local sciolist reminds you to stand straight and look people in the eye (you choose which eye, of course) to help your audience to believe you actually do know what you are talking about. “Fake it ’till you make it.”
