Scribe of wisdom


Pauciloquent (To be pronounced as paw-sil-o-kwent)
If you are a person of few words, then this is the term for you. This is a great way for you to tell people you are a person of few words, without having to say that whole long statement.

Laconic is a synonym with same meaning.

Stylistically, it is also mentioned as being aphoristic.

Exact opposite for being pauciloquent is – bloviate which means talk at length, especially in an inflated or empty way.

I was trying to be friendly but he’s so pauciloquent, it’s like pulling teeth (pulling teeth – means, difficult to extract)

He wasn’t known for his verbosity, more his pauciloquent nature

I hate talking to him because he likes to bloviate so much in our conversations, going on for twenty minutes about anything and everything
