Warble is such a fantastic word and it’s almost onomatopoeic in it’s manner. Warble can be utilized in so many incredible ways and as a descriptive warble’s varied use is practically indispensable! To read or write descriptively like “She warbled on in such a simpering manner, that to retain a pleasant countenance was almost insufferable.” or “The warbling bird song piqued my interest as it soothed and calmed my over-heated temper, and so I drew closer to it, seeking out darling creature that could work such magic.” make the word all the more charming in it’s usage.

I use warble (and it’s various incarnations of warbled and warbling) quite often, I suppose due to my love of overly descriptive prose and poetry, tee-hee! What do you think of the word warble and how do you use it or want to use it?
