Shashi Tharoor, known for his fascinating lexicon, has shared yet another word with the Tweeple. Known for generously dabbing his opinions and arguments with choice words from the English dictionary (remember, farrago, snollygoster, among others?), the Congress MP from Thiruvananthapuram, has now shared yet another word — lalochezia. With this, interestingly, he also gives a name to a condition that a lot of people using the Internet seem to be going through. Lalochezia is the emotional relief that is gained by using indecent or vulgar language, according to dictionary.com. Tharoor shared this useful tidbit with the caption: “Every day, I encounter on @Twitter people suffering from lalochezia! All too often they direct their suffering at me & others who support my beliefs….”

Shortly after, the excitement on learning a new word from ‘Tharoor’s tweet-ictionary’ was palpable as gratitude and tongue-in-cheek humour filled up the comments’ section under the MP’s tweet.
