Language Lab: Omnipluridrome
n. Any word that is not a counterexceptionym.
Although the words themselves are antonyms of one another, it should be noted, to avoid confusion, that omnipluridrome is a counterexceptionym, while counterexceptionym is, of course, an omnipluridrome, as it is not, itself, a counterexceptionym. However, any word that is defined as an omnipluridrome, such as counterexceptionym is automatically defined as not being a counterexceptionym (as is omnipluridrome) and in so doing will obviously alleviate any confusion. Also, there’s no need to create a word to define those people who do not know how to properly use the words counterexceptionym and omnipluridrome, as the word already exists: imbecile.
We were arguing entirely in omnipluridromes until he called me a “filthy Gentile,” to which I emphatically brushed off the dust from my chaplain uniform and shouted “you sighted civilian layperson scoundrel!!” I then briskly exited the room with the help of my guide dog, as he shouted “kiss my counterexceptionym,” knocking that indignant yarmulke right off of his big, imbecilic head, or so I assume.
Please help to expand this article by suggesting further examples of counterexceptionyms and omnipluridromes in the comments area.
