This is a competition to see who can talk in the most show-offish and snottily condescending manner. The competitor and I will try to explain why each of us is the best at making others fell stupid in the most smart sounding way possible. The first round doesn't count and can be in the peasant speak. It is most likely that convincing argument points will be synonymous with the spelling points. First round is acceptance.

As a peasant might say, I accept m'lord.

Over the course of these 5 rounds, I shall affirm that I hold within me a prodigious level of rhetoric versatility. For throughout my being, I have annexed for my utilization a prodigious assortment of words and phrases. This vast glossary is what allows me to proclaim my ideas in an elegant and ornate manner, as you may observe already from the text preceding. It is unlikely that any individual such as yourself could hold a vocabulary nearly as adept as mine. In fact, it is my humble opinion that through the comparison of our respective grasps of the finer points of the written language that we are now participating in, your meager abilities will become null in relative to my own. That is not to say I do not respect those like yourself who attempt to assert that they are of a higher class of intellectual thought, but those of us who are in such a position ultimately triumph over those who only feign this endowment. For the time being I have little else to declare, but I wait expectantly for my opponents argument to, as they say, speak for itself.

You collapse at the precise contemplation of my well-endowed faculty for English etymology. I subsist the supreme essayist of all whom exist and recurrently shall be. I am lordlier than you in every reverence. That is all for now, underdog
