This week’s word is Vociferous which was used by Farmer Farthing in the form of “vociferously”. I like this word, it sounds rather proper and dignified. A nice way to say loud and obnoxious. haha
What does it mean?
Borrowed from Merriam-Webster Dictionary:
: expressing feelings or opinions in a very loud or forceful way : expressed in a very loud or forceful way
1610s, from Latin vociferari “to shout, yell, cry out,” from vox (genitive vocis) “voice” (see voice (n.)) + stem of ferre “to carry” (see infer).
Related: Vociferously; vociferousness.
I found a lot of different examples of uses but have yet to find the origin story of how the word came to be.

Hehe I like that word too, it rolls off the tongue quite nicely 🙂 xx
A favorite word of mine. It makes me want to shake my head as I say it.
Do you shake it vociferously? 😛
I do! It’s like “vo*shake*cif*shake*er*shake*ous*shake*ly”
Lol thanks for the visual.
