Babblement — the perfect word for so much of our culture

Tuesday is for Thinking

Found a new old word today. It has dropped out of use but we need to revive it for our time. 

BABBLEMENT (n.)

“Senseless prattle” or “unmeaning words,” according to Webster. 

Seems like a perfect word for most of what appears on the Evening News, most of what comes out of Washington and a lot of what comes out of the pulpits of America too.


One thought on “Babblement — the perfect word for so much of our culture

  1. Need something stronger, something that carries the sense of foul, putrid babblement. How about something along the lines of the description of the enticing prostitute in Proverbs 7:20-23?
