Wednesday Wordage – Ebullient

mmhh-1031196-mEbullient

Say –  [i-buhl-yuhnt,]

A brilliant word for to describe someone who is full of energy and joy. So you wouldn’t catch me using this word in the morning.

When referring to liquid, it means boiling and or agitated, both uses are great for describing movement and an inability to stay still.

First Known Use: 1599

So what does it look like in a sentence?

His ebullient spirits were always on tap to spill over on the slightest provocation, and, as he was afterwards to demonstrate, he could weary a puppy with play.

-Michael, Brother of Jerry – Jack London
