Changing every word doesn't always make it sound fancier. Case in point: "Gorilla Man-Thing" Ape is the technical term you see.

I agree. It's like someone just used a thesaurus on every single word in the quote. It's like Joey's report on Chandler and Monica.

You say that, but there are actually a large number of the educated masses in England (started/completed Higher Education not Secondary/Further) that do speak in such a way as to make use of synonyms that simply over-complicate what they are trying to say. It could be that the proportion is similar to that of people going on to University in other countries, though I would guess it would not be as in history, England's rich actually specifically created a dialect solely to differentiate themselves from the poor of the country and the fact that the rich were also those of higher education at the time means that they would have used "large" words due to those they spoke to having a common knowledge of such words. It just happens that it became seen as a sign of intelligence (when really it was just a sign of being rich and having knowledge - not necessarily the same as intelligence, though that's a discussion for another day) and became linked to the dialect of the rich and educated of England. So many who consider themselves intelligent attempt to speak in such a manner within the country.

I will admit, at times I do, at times, speak in such a way, however largely only with friends of similar education. Though I do sometimes do it to people who piss me off just because I know it will piss them off without me doing anything overtly offensive.
