adjective: Speaking incessantly or fluently.
Via French, from Latin volvere (to roll). Ultimately from the Indo-European root wel- (to turn or roll), which also gave us waltz, revolve, valley, walk, vault, volume, wallet, and helix. Earliest documented use: 1575.

EVOLUBLE - a quality assigned to any pre-adapted animal that can effect strings of articulated speech. So far homo sapiens sapiens is the only known species to evolve a proper language. These loquacious creatures began talking 75,000 years ago and haven't stopped since.
