Pedantic

Pedantic

<ped-dan-tik>

unclear; pompous; egotistic;

saying something in a confusing way to sound important.

The pedantic teacher bored me. He talked about himself for hours.

Memory trick.
We win a pendant or showy jewelry when we talk a lot.

Used at work.
Don't make the report pedantic. Keep it plain and simple.
