Wacky Word Wednesday

Well, here we are, Wednesday again and ready to dig up and dust off a weird, wacky or wonderful word to share with you. Now, I have been a bit naughty this week (no, that THAT kind of naughty), and nicked a word from my lovely friend David. I have to admit to not having heard of this word before, so I shall be educating myself, as well as hopefully introducing some of you to a new word too!

Blatherskite.  Well, this is a babbling and blubbering kind of a word. The kind of gobshite that talks a load of gibberish, but loves the sound of their own voice! The blusterer  and boaster, pontificating and prattling on despite the snores and groans from the unfortunate listeners!

This talking a load of twaddle, nattering on about nonsense, uttering unintelligibly, or even gabbling a load of gobbledegook! Sounds like me when I get nervous!

      1. Maybe I’ll have to move a few hours north to Canada….just kidding, as I don’t have that option! I signed up for NaPoWriMo…would you believe I typed the wrong name for my blog? I must be getting older than I thought, or maybe just exhausted! Anyway, I corrected it–wish the hostess could just delete my error…. 🙂

      1. Indeed. Love your Wacky Wednesdays.
        For my birthday last year, a sister presented me with a word-a-day desk calendar with words like hamartia, uxorial, quodlibert. Eke. I don’t talk like that. o_O Haven’t ripped off one page yet. 😀

  1. Oh, Judy, you are a wordsmith deluxe. I sort of know all those words you blather about so well, but I would never think to use them. Another thing – this comment string is full of my friends. And still I have courage admit I voted for Trump. Come on, y’all! Don’t tramp on me! Funny how many people vote for him, and how few I find who admit it. They must all be working instead of blogging! Now that is supposed to be funny!:D 😀

  2. Since it also means prattling on without ever coming to a conclusion I’d say your picture choice is wonderful Judy. I love the descriptions you’ve given here. The word just seems to convey a bit of contempt for the person you call a blatherskite.
