Ultracrepidation

Just learnt a great new word on rather dull Sunday morning in Toronto.

Ultracrepidate. To criticise outside of the realm of one’s knowledge.

As in “Ed Lee ultracepidates on public relations, social media and marketing on a regular basis.”

Would you say that ultracrepidating and blogging are pretty much interchangable these days?

    Very nice word. And I think you’re pretty accurate in your last statement.

    Yo, Ed, I thought you would enjoy this expanded definition/roots of ultracrepidation (including its classical Latin allusion):
