Word that means when a word is misused in a sentence?

particularly when a word is accidentally used instead of another or when someone uses a long word to sound intelligent?

for example: your hair is so intellectual

or the fish just seems so unreliable

the examples are pretty exaggerated and its quite hard to explain :S
