** Early Eighties companion Adric does this a couple of times in "Four to Doomsday". Early in the story, he refers to the Milky Way galaxy as "Galaxia Kyplos"; Tegan thinks he's talking about somewhere in Corfu until the Doctor tells her that "Adric's just showing off". Later, while sharing a meal with the Doctor, Tegan and Nyssa, Adric asks if anyone will "pass the sodium chloride", by which he means salt.

--->'''Edd (breaking character):''' PARCHED! The word you're looking for is ''parched''!

One of the symptoms of SpockSpeak, but averted in a good PrivateEyeMonologue. Usually also a MotorMouth. [[SmartPeopleSpeakTheQueensEnglish Goes well with British accents, too]]. Used frequently in SommelierSpeak. Often takes advantage of the fact that TalkingIsAFreeAction, and could be a case of AcousticLicense if the surroundings would make it difficult to hear clearly in the first place, much less understand the words. See also TechnoBabble, ExpospeakGag, AntiquatedLinguistics, SophisticatedAsHell, and DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment. May result in CallingMeALogarithm. If someone tries for this and can't get the words right, they're perpetrating DelusionsOfEloquence. If the ''author'' commits this, see PurpleProse. The word {{Antidisestablishmentarianism}} is almost guaranteed to show up as well.
