Word Of The Week - Mystery Word Revealed

Hey-ho it's Wednesday and time to reveal the 'mystery' word from last week.
Your guesses gave me lots of giggles and a little spark of creativity as I compiled them into this image to share.....can you see your word/s?
Of course the mystery word is loquacious, nice work Rose Penelope and supermac for your spot on guessing!
What a wonderful word this is....you may have twigged by now that I have a particular fondness for words with 'q' in them and loquacious has a lovely gracefulness to it too.

As for the meaning, have a read and let me know if anyone you know springs to mind...

lo·qua·cious 

1. full of excessive talk: wordy
2. given to fluent or excessive talk: garrulous

All through my life I've been known as a chatterbox but a little 'heads up' for my family and friends, if you must refer to my talkativeness, could you please describe me as loquacious? Thanks.

When I first thought to showcase this word for our zhushy list, I had the intention to work with the Biggest Gift to make a stop-motion video showing you how to make a chatterbox game or as they're sometimes known handhopper. Time got the better of us again this week with birthdays, triathlons and baby-sitting so instead I'll pop up the template that I made for you & actually got to use with all the classes that I taught last week. I hope that you can follow my instructions.

The Littlest Gift modified his to create an interactive birthday card for his sister and I've used them as love letters, revision quizzes and question generators....I hope you have fun using yours too!


So tell me, tell me, tell me do....are you the loquacious kind, a lover of uttering words like me?
Or perhaps you're a quieter soul who likes to measure your conversations?

Happy day Lovely You I hope it's a goodie!

  1. I am most definitely not loquacious. I guess I just don't have that much to say : ) But I sure think it!

  7. Dang! I wish I would have guessed LOQUACIOUS! It's such a fun word that plays in the mouth before coming out. I think my little 14-year-old will enjoy hearing me call her loquacious. And so for Azure, I say "thank you" :)

    Hi Felicity, oh I missed this post, for some reason you are not coming up on my google friend feed - hmm have to sort that.

    I have been wondering all week when you would post this answer so I have come searching.

    I have never heard of the word, so you have taught me something - and yes I guess it does describe you well!
