DAY 287 of 365 Days of Literacy for Kids:
Obsolete words are no longer in general use and may have fallen out of favor for nearly a century or more, but who says obsolete and rarely used words can’t be revived by kids who love words?
Today’s word is LARGILOQUENT (larj-il-o-quent) , derived from the Latin largus + loqui, meaning large speak.
The word largiloquent means full of words, overly talkative.
We all know largiloquent people.
The word largiloquent gives us a great way to define these people.
Kids will love largiloquent because they’ll remember it as large speak…
Use the word largiloquent with your kids and grandkids today. Just do so in the smallest speak possible!
