Formal Speech Thread

Formal Speech Thread

Be as formal and haughty as you possibly can. Type with your nose up in the air to set the tone. Be above all and superior. Or just be impossibly polite and formal. Have conversations over tea about society, sail along and make a fool out of yourself and hastily (or elegantly) recover, use unnecessarily long words and fancy metonyms (synonym for synonym) with impeccable grammar and the opposite of contractions, whatever you would like I do not care, but have fun. I can not put an exclamation point there because then I would not be as haughty as I would like but it is implied.

And if you need a break you can always use italics, because woah my formal speech was horrible and it feels like my grammar leaves lots to desire even though I usually really care about it (suddenly I don't, who knows why). Anyways, credits to the sailing along part go to Poinsettia btw Idk if you remember but you said/did a version of that in the "Be Ridiculous Thread" or whatever it was called.

Or actually let's do formal speech in italics and common in normal bc italics looks so much more fancier  :)

And this is probably a stereotype of rich people or whoever so sorry rich people or whoever no disrespect it's just fun

It is indeed quite difficult to communicate in formal language.

Aptly said. And yet we must persevere.

No, it is not difficult to practice the art of exceptionally formal speech. It is only toilsome to those who cannot do it effortlessly.

Crumpets? Where???? I MUST HAVE CRUMPETS!! *pauses in midst of breaking character* what I meant to say... was... that... crumpets are delightfully pleasant and may I please inquire if you would be so kind as to offer me a nibble of the scrumptious treat?

I dare say my dear friend Darkling would quite possibly find this thread a delight of its own! What an impeccable notion, Celine!

It is often an inquiry of mine if Shakespeare's idiosyncratic, or shall I say, unique and peculiar, manuscript language is a form of fancy dialogue. And crumpets are quite an unnecessary distraction that will not, might I repeat again, redirect my point of focus from fancy dialogue.

Ah, I feel as if I had waited the entirety of my brief existance for a thread such as this. It tends to remind me forcibly of Victorian-era literature. Perchance you would all wish to have tea with me in the garden? Then we can talk amongst ourselves of the difficulties that would arise should we choose to talk this way all the time.

What a splendid idea, Miss Flamarestii! It is truth that, perhaps, many disputes may arise as a consequence of our formal speech, but it may also be truth that many assets may come out of such a change in society. For one, speech would be more complicated, which may seem to be a disadvantage, however, 'tis not, as we as a people may ruminate more on what should be said rather than just saying nonsense outright (although I am rather fond of nonsense myself). Another benefit, if I may, would that speech would sound more elegant and perhaps people would appreciate more of this world. This being so, it would be much easier to say things of joy, would it not, than to say things of sorrow and grief. If, perchance, any of you lovely people have read a work by the name of "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe," and are pleasant with SPOILERS, does this not remind you of when, after the four protagonists of the world have transformed to kings and queens, they spoke a tad different than their selves of youth?

What a perfectly delightful idea! And just to give all of you chums more of depth to what I sound like, my fancy formal voice is always British. So, you all know know what I sound like when I grace this thread with my royal self. Tally ho!

For a quite particular yet unfamiliar explanation, once I start communicating in a fancy manner, I tend to imagine my speech as British automatically. How peculiar indeed!

Ah me, the delights of eloquent, grandiose speech. Indeed, allow me to assure you that this is verily reminding me of medieval times - perchance of Robin Hood? Alas, times have changed, although I believe it may perhaps be for the better. The complications that arise from such usage of language are indeed slight, and the pleasantries exchanged in the usage of it are more than enough to make up for this undeniable fact. And ah, would you allow me, as well, to partake of the delicacy of crumpets? And perchance tea as well? I am so very fond of tea, I must indeed admit it.
