Word Wednesday- November 6, 2013- Pedantic

Standard

Today’s word is PEDANTIC. It has a couple of meanings but they are related. A person who is Pedantic is someone who is (1) narrowly or ostentatiously learned or
(2) unimaginative, pedestrian

This person annoys people by correcting small errors and giving too much detail to little details. My older son thinks my younger son is a pedant and sadly, sometimes I have to agree. That young man is very exact and precise. I think it may help him in a career but as a college student, it can be quite annoying. LOL
