Bemoverate

It means to move, and is used to make a mockery of academic papers that use unnecessarily complicated language to describe something very simple in an effort to look big.

I see that concept used often. But I call it another word that I cannot use on this forum. :P

Coffockery: /kɒf-'ɑkəri/ n. A drink made by taking a perfectly good cup of coffee and ruin it by adding cream and sugar (or nondairy creamer and sugar substitute). Compound word (coffee + mockery). He's making a coffockery (He's making a mockery of that coffee).

caterpillar (n.)

"larva of a butterfly or moth," mid-15c., catyrpel, probably altered (by association with Middle English piller "plunderer;" see pillage (n.)) from Old North French caterpilose "caterpillar" (Old French chatepelose), literally "shaggy cat" (probably in reference to the "wooly-bear" variety), from Late Latin catta pilosa, from catta "cat" (see cat (n.)) + pilosus "hairy, shaggy, covered with hair," from pilus "hair" (see pile (n.3)).

Compare also French chenille "caterpillar," literally "little dog." A Swiss German name for it is teufelskatz "devil's cat." "The caterpillar has in many idioms received the name of other animals" [Kitchin, who cites also Milanese cagnon "little dog," Italian dialectal gattola "little cat," Kentish hop-dog, hop-cat, Portuguese lagarta "lizard."] Compare also American English wooly-bear for the hairy variety. An Old English name for it was cawelworm "cole-worm." Caterpillar tractor, one which travels on endless steel belts, is from 1908, so called from its way of moving.

They made up it for us.
