Hyperbolic is an adjective that comes from the word hyperbole, which means an exaggerated claim.

The Greek root huperbolē means “excess,” and broken down even further the word literally translates as “throw above.”

onomatopoeia

Boom! Bang! Crash! When a word is formed from the sound that an associated thing makes, it's an example of onomatopoeia.

In Greek, onomatopoeia (on-uh-mah-tuh-PEE-ah) simply means "word-making," but in English it refers to a very specific process of word-making: an attempt to capture the sound of something. Examples of onomatopoeia in English include burble, buzz, slosh, ratatat, and thud. Words created by onomatopoeia can seem totally natural, but they can be surprisingly different from language to language.

interlocutor........

One who takes part in dialogue or conversation.

Interlocutor derives from the Latin interloqui, meaning "to speak between". Interloqui, in turn, ultimately comes from the words inter-, "between," and loqui, "to speak." Some other words that English borrowed from loqui are loquacious "talkative", circumlocution essentially, "talking around a subject", ventriloquism "talking in such a way that one's voice seems to come from someone or something else", eloquent "capable of fluent or vivid speech, and grandiloquence "extravagant or pompous speech".

talisman..............

An object, typically an inscribed ring or stone, that is thought to have magic powers and to bring good luck. An object held to act as a charm to avert evil and bring good fortune. Something producing apparently magical or miraculous effects.

Do you believe in lucky charms? Language reflects the fact that many people do. We might have borrowed talisman from French, Spanish, or Italian; all three include similar-looking words for a lucky charm. Those three terms derive from a single Arabic word for a charm, tilsam. Tilsam in turn can be traced to the ancient Greek verb telein, which means "to initiate into the mysteries." While the word talisman, in its strictest use, refers to an object, even a human being can be considered a talisman—such as a player on a team whose mere presence somehow causes magical things to happen.

Let's tell folks what exactly gentrification means. Pls. correct me if I miss a point.

A venture capitalist, one who invests in the misfortunes of others, comes into a city, neighborhood, basically any area which has befallen economic hardship. Examples would include Gary/Hammond IN, parts of Pittsburgh and Akron and Cleveland. Detroit would fall in this category which these mega-rich investors come in, offering residents cents on the dollars to acquire these once proven profitable properties. The old neighborhoods were razed with new malls, apartment building which have rents unaffordable by residents, and other services and products out of the residents range.

These prior residents are displaced to more and more unsatisfactory housing. In addition, the items they were forced to leave behind, ancestral photographs, antiques, and glassware, sometimes worth hundreds of thousands dollars if they could have sold the items. They might not be stuck in this cycle of poverty.

I do say this has been one of the biggest contribution to the homelessness problem in American! I really don't want to get on a soapbox here BUT....I firmly believe that many palms have been greased for everything from re-zoning to god only knows what-else so these developers can swoop in, make millions, and then move on to bigger & even more profitable targets!
