Fancifying words is my hobby

I love how you can make the word "often" 150 times more fancy by dropping the "en". "Often used" vs "oft used" -- you be the judge.

    Which begs the question: which is fancier: “often” or
    “oftentimes”? Which then begs the question: do we really need all
    three of these words?

      Hmm, seems that often is just too middle of the road for its own good. It gets fancier the shorter or longer it is. If I was often, I’d have a complex about myself.
