loquacious

I got caught up in errands and almost forgot about posting today!  That being said, here's today's word:

loquacious, adjective

loj-KWEY-shuhs

1 - talking or tending to talk much or freely; talkative; chattering; babbling; garrulous
2 - characterized by excessive talk; wordy

Origin Latin, 1665, loquacity from loquacitas (talkativeness), derivative of loqui (to speak).


Example from the movie Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (where I first heard this word):
Hermione: Harry, you told me you'd figured that egg out weeks ago!  The task is two days from now!
Harry: Really?  I had no idea.  I suppose Viktor's already figured it out.
Hermione: Wouldn't know.  We don't actually talk about the tournament.  Actually, we don't really talk at all.  Viktor's more of a physical being.
Harry laughs and Hermione blushes.
Hermione: I just mean he's not particularly loquacious.  Mostly, he watches me study.  It's a bit annoying, actually.
