Another word I really like is cacophony.

Cacophony is one of the words my sister has banned me from using since she says I'm far too pretentious already.  ;D
Tell her you are sick of her cacophonous blathering ;)

Yes, best say sorry. Tell her you're anaspeptic, phrasmotic, even compunctious to have
caused her such pericombobulation.

This is much better than what I said.

Ahh well, anything I can do to facilitate your velocitous extramuralisation. I'm off for my pendigestatory interludicule. I'll be back interphrastically.

I just found another word today which may have jumped to the top of my list.

Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia - It is actually the fear of long words. Yes. I know. It is amazing.

A word with you, sir, can mean seven million syllables. You might start now and not be finished by bedtime!

Personally, I've always enjoyed:

Obstreperous (willfully disobedient)
Noctilucent (describes a certain type of amazing-looking cloud)
Blandiloquent (ingratiating speech)
Maledicent (slanderous/verbally abusive)
Autolatry (worshipping oneself)

And a word I fear is often overlooked in cases like these...
