Dulciloquent (or dulciloquence) 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.
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.
Chat on with dulciloquence fellow quaintrelle’s!
