The secret of successful writing and speaking:

In promulgating your esoteric cogitations or articulating your
superficial sentimentalities and amicable, philosophical or
psychological observations, either in prose or as extemporaneous verbal
evaporations or expatiations,

Embrace
        clarified conciseness
        compact comprehensibleness
        lucidity
        intelligibility
        veracious vivacity

Eschew (i.e., sedulously avoid coalescent conglomerations of)
        pompous prolixity
        platitudious ponderosity
        precise garrulity
        jejeune bafflement
        asinine affectations
        rodomontade
        thespian bombast
        punctilious remonstrance
        profligate expostulation
        polysyllabic profundity
        pompous propensity
        psittaceous vacuity
        ventriloquent verbosity
        vaniloquent vapidity
        double entendre
        obnoxous jocosity
        pestiferous profanity
        redundant repetition
