• I believe they are different parts of speech. It is repetitious to say something is repetitive more than once.
  • I don't view the word "repetitious" as fancy. It's more about the connotation each word has. Generally, "repetitious" is used when a negative connotation is warranted, and "repetitive" is used in a more neutral context.

  • "I'm hungry..I wanna eat right now..I'm starving." That is repeatedly saying the same thing..or being repetitive.

I don't know what the dictionary would say. Happy Sunday! :)
