MAIEUTICS is the kind of word that you shouldn't use in Scrabble.
Everyone will think you're an arse, and it will only get you into trouble
Even if you genuinely know it or it was just a random guess
They will all talk at you in stentorian tones of your sesquipedalian excess
Don't use words like "epiphenomenal," "diegetic" or "proprioceptive." too
It's just that kind of malarkey that will land you in the poo.
Keep it simple, keep it short,
Don't ever get them mad.
Keep your words only slightly better than theirs
and they'll never know that they been had.
