Ooh, these are all fabulous! I love weird, obscure words!

Here are some of my favorites:

Lolloping- to walk in a clumsy, bouncy manner. (This is one of those words you need to say in a British accent XD)

Sesquipedalian- someone who overuses long words to seem intelligent.

Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia- The longest word in the English language, and it means the fear of long words. (Yes, this is an actual thing, I checked.)

Blutterance- Any phrase you say when you’re not really listening to someone. Like: “Oh, really,” and “Uh-huh,”
