#3: Garrulous

The Definition:

garrulous : given to prosy, rambling, or tedious loquacity : pointlessly or annoyingly talkative

Editor's Note:

"The definition precisely explains how this word's meaning differs from related adjectives like chatty and loquacious, and gives you a good sense of the aggravation a garrulous person causes. It's not just being talkative – it's being tediously, pointlessly, and annoyingly (hopefully, not all at once) talkative."
