  1. LOL!! To me, seems like ploo-ri-sig-ni-fi-KAY-shuhn is a fancy way to call symbolism in words, or plain sarcasm! This is a great word, Amanda! Thank you enriching my dictionary! <3

    I love this feature, you always find a word I've never heard! Hopefully I can find these words in my TOEFL questions or something like that! x)
