Bomphiologia

Description

Bomphiologia is bombastic, bragging speech.

Example

I am, quite simply, the greatest and most accomplished narrator you will find in the Northern Hemisphere (I have no interest in the South).

You, sir! Come hither. Now look at this sorry chap. Does he not, in his common garb, tell you how inferior his classes are and how superior we are?

I earn a great deal more than you, you know. No, don't ask me how much, because I don't talk about it. But let's just say I bought another Ferrarri last week. It's the new model, of course.

Discussion

Sometimes people have more money or power than sense and it goes to their head, but in a way that can be either irritating or vaguely comic.

The bombast is a person who sits in the middle of their own world. They love nothing more than an attentive and admiring audience whilst they spout about anything that takes their interest or confirms their superiority, talking loudly and at length.

Classification: Attention
