Loquacious [loh-kwey-shuh s] is a splendid adjective that I’ve found strangely fitting for myself. I’m quiet…unless I’m not–get me talking on something I love and I will talk for hours! And why use a boring word like “wordy” or “talkative” when you could say “loquacious”? (Say it, I dare you
!) Any word with a “q” in it is going to be fun!
For those of you who are interested in such things, its roots can be traced back to yet another mid-17th century Latin word loquax, which is from a Latin verb, loqui (“to talk”).
Related words include the rather obvious adverb loquaciously, and the nouns loquacity and loquaciousness.
There–it took me long enough to write a post about one of the words in the title of my blog! XD
