Pronunciation: TEK-no-babl

Sentence: Lance is a techie dweeb and a social nerd so it just comes natural to him to sprinkle all kinds of technobabble in all of his conversations, a practice that really irritates his fiancé, Paula, as she is totally techno illiterate.

Etymology: Blend of 'technology' (the branch of knowledge that deals with the creation and use of technical means and their interrelation with life) and 'babble' (To utter a meaningless confusion of words or sounds)
