Over the past year, Reader Rant has participated in the Development of an Astounding Advancement in the Expansion and Enhancement of the English language.

A New Word was made up by the Logtroll and tested surreptitiously through a Programme of Incidental Use and response monitoring. No Ranters saw a need to Call Bullshit on the New Word, and acceptance was deemed entire by the Monitoring Committee.

After Several Months of testing the New Word, with approximately six insertions, Logtroll queried Moderator Greger as to why none of the Reader Rant Eggheads had Called Bullshit on the use of a word with No Meaning. Logtroll admitted to Moderator Greger that he had simply pulled the New Word out of his ass. As an interesting aside, the New Word was initially defined to mean, "Something pulled out of one's ass".

In the second round of testing, Moderator Greger also used the New Word liberally (Liberally?) and recorded the Reader Ranter Response, which again was zero.

Recently, Moderator Greger refined the definition of the New Word and submitted it to the folks at Urban Dictionary, where it has been accepted.

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=temious

Yes, Ranters, the New Word is "Temious". Thank you all for being such pleasant and non-responsive guinea pigs. ThumbsUp

I must confess that I have not seen it used anywhere. I believe your definition, however, leaves out the most common occurrence of the rhetorical form you describe: the intentional and malicious purveying of false statements, also easily disproved by simple Google searches, for political purposes. The accidental or rash aspect of your word leaves out the many utterances of, for example, Rush Limbaugh, John Boehner, Eric Cantor, etc. I am not yet certain whether Michelle Bachman and Sarah Palin are temious or vile.

Have you considered that perhaps you disguised it so well with so much other surrounding bullshite that it went un-noticed?:-)
Actually, not being a forum grammar nanny, and being a laid-back, easygoing, live-and-let-live kinda guy, I thought you simply were using a word the spelling of which might have been unfamiliar to you.

Not sure how the Urban Dictionary works, but you all obviously knew what the New Word meant, so you should have some influence over further refining the definition, IMHO.

I owe a full ration to Greger for his participation and entrepreneurialism vis a vis the Urban Dictionary. ThumbsUp

Really, tweren't nuthin', the word was just so wordlike it was a shame it hadn't already been deemed a word. Now it is forever ensconced in the halls of worddom.

Well, I certainly noticed the word and knew that it was not a word properly formed from Latin. I did not call attention to it, frankly, because there are so many errors of grammar, spelling and punctuation on this site that it would be more than a life's labor to call attention to them all, and since Americans, in general, are so tetchy and intolerant when their errors are pointed out to them, I try to save my efforts for the most egregious examples of departure from good style.
