sesquipedalian: when applying it to words, it means polysyllabic or long

But I prefer when it's used to describe a person: someone who uses overly long-winded or big words

In order to use it, you have to be it

I really like the weird poetry of some French terms:

Papillon de nuit - a moth, literally a butterfly of the night
Pomme de terre - potato, literally apple of the earth

And some are just fun to say despite their decidedly unpoetic nature such as

Parapluie: an umbrella
