Word of the Day


Pronunciation /pəˈlɪləkw(ə)nt/ /pɒˈlɪləkw(ə)nt/
That talks or writes a great deal, loquacious; verbose.

Mid 17th century; earliest use found in Thomas Blount (1618–1679), antiquary and lexicographer. From poly- + -loquent.


“Um…” said Ted. [He smiled, bowed, waved and walked off stage to thunderous applause. His talk ended with that, as soon as it started. He was definitely not polyloquent.]
