* People with a Romance language (French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese...) as a first language can sometimes unintentionally sound like this when speaking English. Modern English results from a combination of Germanic and Romance[[note]]mostly from medieval French[[/note]] roots. While words from Germanic roots are shorter and more common, Romance words are longer and more formal, but, since they're closer from their own language, Romance-language speakers sometimes instinctively choose them.

** Pip and Jane Baker were really fond of the phrase "fortuitous would be a more apposite epithet". The Master uses it in "The Mark of the Rani" as well. Of course, the Master as played by Anthony Ainley, was always prone to thesaurus abuse.

* A simple one from [[Film/ANewHope ''Star Wars'']]. The Rebel fighters are warned about the incoming TIEs.
--> ''Del Goren: We've picked up a new group of signals: enemy fighters coming your way.''
--> ''Luke Skywalker: My scope's negative, I don't see anything.''
--> ''Garven Dreis: Pick up your visual scanning.''

* Underplayed in ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'' when Mikkel uses it to lampshade the ridiculousness of Emil's request. While not up to par with other examples of this page, it definitely stands out in comic.

* Parodied to the extreme with Lucky's three page monologue in ''Theatre/WaitingForGodot''. Read through it carefully and there is actually a philosophical point being made, but it is embroidered with so much verbal diaorreah, non-sequitors and just sheer nonsense words that it sounds like a complete load of gibberish.

** Pearl does this sometimes as well, because she's TheSmartGuy and prone to being overly dramatic.
--> ''Pearl''': Are the shirts [[DrivenToSuicide destroying the wearer's will to continue on in this mortal coil]], thereby shutting down Beach City?!

* Hermione Granger in ''Film/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire''. One of the many reasons why the script was so awful is that it appears when writing Hermione's lines, they wrote them out normally before getting out a thesaurus and changing all the words to make her sound smart. Examples include "Viktor's more of a physical being. I mean, he's not particularly loquacious"; "Again obvious though potentially problematic". This isn't present in the other films though.
