Today’s word is magniloquent. This word describes using a grandiose way of speaking.
My speech is far from being eloquent. When I first saw a doctor about the Ataxia, I was surprised to see in the doctor’s notes, “exhibits mild dysarthria.” I had to look that one up. Dysarthria is a disorder of articulation. Wow, I hadn’t realized that. As I thought about it, however, I realized I could no longer sing stuff like “la, la, la, la.” The lack of that skill is not a catastrophe, however, the fact that I have a hard time clearly saying something when I’m nervous, is. The thing I’ve learned, is to slow down when I speak.
