Kids in the Hall question - "Ascertain" sketch

There's a sketch where Bruce gets in trouble for the language he's using around the other guys at work. Dave tells him the problem is he uses the word "ascertain" too much. Bruce agrees to try not to say it anymore. Dave says a word and Bruce gets all enamored with it. What is the new word???

Thank you! And you spelled it right.

I must admit - I probably overuse delineate, too.
