Word Of The Day : Garrulous

Word Of The Day : Garrulous

I had this habit of learning a new word everyday back when I was in school. People that know me always ask me why I put my dictionary on my bed beside my bible. I usually tell them that, every day I wake up, I do my quiet time and try to learn the word of the day.

As I grew up, I slowly dropped the habit because I felt there was no time. Things had changed and every minute was precious.

As I was reflecting last weekend, I realized that the habit I dropped had cost me a lot and so I decided to pick it up. I know there are many others like me so I decided to post a new word everyday. The word of the day is GARRULOUS.

What exactly is the meaning?

According to Merriam Webster, garrulous means given to prosy, rambling or tedious. It is pointlessly or annoyingly talkative. It also means using or containing many and usually too many words.

Example: Sayo’s garrulous and outgoing nature is a stark contrast to her brother’s more retiring outward behaviour. Steve is a very garrulous fellow, you don’t want to tell a secret.
