You're an epistemophiliac.

Pedophrasty

Definition: Argument involving children to prop up a rationalization and make the opponent look like an asshole, as people are defenseless and suspend all skepticism in front of suffering children: nobody has the heart to question the authenticity or source of the reporting. Often done with the aid of pictures.

Can also describe the exploitation of babies by professional beggars who rent them from their parents and use them as potent appendage in their trade(remember that children tend to grow and need to be replaced).

Sangoma, can you use pedophrasty in a sentence?

ne plus ul·tra

Pronounced nā ˌplo͝os ˈo͝oltrə/

the perfect or most extreme example of its kind; the ultimate.

The wave did not qualify as mind-blowingly huge, and Kennelly did not get barreled, a.k.a. tubed, the ne plus ultra of the sport, by riding inside the whirling cylinder created when the lip of the wave curls over and forms a tunnel before collapsing.

elision

noun
the omission of a sound or syllable when speaking (as in I'm, let's).
an omission of a passage in a book, speech, or film.
"the movie's elisions and distortions have been carefully thought out"


The opposite of elision is

epenthesis

whereby sounds are inserted into a word, as in American English ath[ə]lete, real[ə]tor.
