They make veiled and unveiled references to what they presume are your life motivations when they try to sign you up for Amway. They sing really badly in talent quests. They wear very short shorts covering grotesquely obese arses, or body shirts on skeletal chests.

discriminationary - Discriminatory. Formed by adding a suffix to "discrimination." "Hateful language directed at the most vulnerable in society is never acceptable."


suffix occurring originally in loanwords from Classical and Medieval Latin, on adjectives (elementary; honorary; stationary; tributary), personal nouns (actuary; notary; secretary), or nouns denoting objects, especially receptacles or places (library; rosary; glossary). The suffix has the general sense “pertaining to, connected with” the referent named by the base; it is productive in English, sometimes with the additional senses “contributing to,” “for the purpose of,” and usually forming adjectives: complimentary; visionary; revolutionary; inflationary.

e.g., "I'm no fan of [Ricky] Gervais, but surely if all other sectors of society are ridiculed in comedy, not ridiculing the disabled is discriminationary?" | "A hostile environment in the workplace may also be created by discriminationary behavior based on race, ethnicity, or national origin." | "Actually they don't catch all discriminationary conduct in the act. If you look at two items for sale but choose one because it appears to be better made, that's discrimination. If you get married because you find someone who has a particular concentration of traits that you find attractive, that's discrimination, too. And, especially racy, if you choose a certain colour of clothing because it matches your skin tone better, DISCRIMINATION! Such conduct is not illegal. Yet."

dislocuta - “In a slightly condescending, but ultimately necessary, footnote the author [Theodor Adorno] defined the term as, ‘The anxiety brought about by the restrictive nature of language, and by extension, that brought about by the restrictive nature of any system of meaning.’ …

“‘Dislocuta’ does not simply refer to the distress of [someone those] who cannot express themselves, but very precisely, the distress of [the individual individuals] who cannot put their thoughts into language due to the boundaries of the system of meaning in which they necessarily take part.”

e.g., The Occupy protesters suffered from a terrible case of dislocuta: the ideals they fought for could not be explained within the language of capitalism. | “Out of all the words that had me reaching for the dictionary there was one that stood out, namely ‘dislocuta.’

“In the opening passage of an essay discussing Adorno’s attitude to life after the Holocaust I stumbled on this pithy summary, ‘Adorno’s comments on the impossibility of poetry after Auschwitz typify the intellectual dislocuta prevalent in post-war Europe.”
