When this happens InUniverse because someone has an inflated estimation of their own vocabulary, it's DelusionsOfEloquence or {{Malaproper}}. If it happens in a foreign language, it's MyHovercraftIsFullOfEels. When it's applied to tropes on this wiki, you get SquarePegRoundTrope. When someone insists on doing this even after the confusion is pointed out, they're using a PersonalDictionary.

* '''[[Film/ThePrincessBride Inconceivable]]''', the word referred to in the page quote. It means that something is impossible even to imagine (or, depending on usage, to conceive in a biological sense, such as an inter-species crossbreed), although there is some variability to this. Anything that is truly and utterly inconceivable would by definition [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm be unimaginable in any way, shape or form by our minds (including the mere concept), as they simply weren’t designed to conjure up such information]]. In any case, it does not mean "impossible", "highly unlikely", or "unfortunate". (It should be noted that this may not be a valid definition, but it's perfectly valid ''as hyperbole''.) The closest synonym would probably be "incomprehensible". For example, a man in black scaling a cliff after the rope he was climbing was dropped is unlikely, while scaling the cliff without limbs would be impossible. ''[[LogicBomb The cliff being perfectly flat]]'' is inconceivable.
