A word invented by....

This one comes from the brilliant minds of the education world.  It really is a stroke of (I don't want to say genius!), well it's a stroke of something anyway.  Once you get past the immediate ick-factor it does give the educationally inclined a bit of a giggle.  

Edjaculation: the act of spurting educational jargon and edu-speak when excited or in an argument.  

I would like to suggest that this is also a "last resort" option for those who find themselves in a meeting and want to sound impressive so they can take charge and end it as soon as possible.  I would also like to have it stated for the record that I don't use educational jargon, unless I know that it is going to irritate my boss, in which case, I go to town!
