) derives from the Latin form loqui
which means to speak, and in this case, it means to speak in a sweet manner. While I’m sure that dulciloquent
can refer to using a cloying, saccharine sort of tone, I’d prefer to think of it as utilizing a rich, beautiful vocabulary and having a lovely tone to the voice as one expresses themselves in a kind and capable sort of manner.
Yeah, this might be a bit too dulciloquent…
Certainly, one who is felicitous
in manner would naturally become dulciloquent
in their mode of expression…at least that’s what I like to believe. I think that dulciloquence
is something that a quaintrelle
has, simply because they love to share their thoughts and feelings in a friendly, cheerful way and they listen with the same sort of lively and engaging spirit.
