""Rather, a typical $5 word user wants to dress up shallow thoughts as deep profound. This phenomenon can be observed in all languages, even without problems of understanding.""

Precisely the gist of my earlier offering, couched in words valued between $5 and $50. You don't get much more pseudo profound than the following:

""The socially ambitious wunderkind is oftentimes an egregious ignoramus, whose insubstantial powers of ratiocination precipitate an ineluctable penchant for sesquipedalian communication, in an ineffectual endeavour to accede to the eminence of the erudite pedagogues of academe.
