A friend and I are trying to remember a word to describe someone who is overly proud of their education. An example usage would be:
Does that email make me appear too ___?
Where the ___ is the word I am looking for, in case that is not obvious. He thought the word was "erudite" but when that appears to just mean educated, it doesn't convey the sense of condescending pride we are looking for.
What is the word I we are looking for?
