The definition is too garrulous. I.e. The number of words in this specific definition of garrulous (as given by Wiktionary the free online dictionary to which this comment is sent), as opposed to other definitions given of the same word (garrulous) in other dictionaries (i.e. those that are not Wiktionary the free online dictionary or those, if any, which share the name yet are different) or definitions given of different words in this same dictionary (Wiktionary the free online dictionary), contains, or is made up of excessive or unnecessary numbers of words. This means that the length of the definition is greater than that which the author of this comment believes is necessary for the level of edification concerning this word that the majority of readers in this early part of the twenty-first century (the early part of the years between 2000 and 3000 A.D.)requires. N.B. I, the writer of this comment make no statement concerning the total edification of all possible users of the Wiktionary free online dictionary definition of the word garrulous, i.e. I disclaim the claim that all readers of the definition will gain the total required insight into the definition of garrulous by means of a shortened definition.

- Alas, indeed we, and by we I mean not only you and I, nor merely my own self and the online dictionary editing community of which I am part and on whose feedback page I write at this present moment an answer to a feedback by someone who is naming himself Johnny Parktise, namely you, and not even only the three of these entities which I have just mentioned in a previous part of this rather garrulous sentence, but, yea, the entire population of human beings which may be found in this wide world upon which we, the human beings I just mentioned, dwell, must face and live with the indeed quite plausible claim which you, the feedbacker whose name is, as you claim, Johnny Praktise, made that the definition of the vocable of the English language “garrulous” given by this online, collaborative compendium of words, terms and expression which has been given the title Wiktionary and the slogan “a wiki-based Open Content dictionary” or “the free dictionary” (the true slogan varies depending on who you query) is, without any shade of uncertainty at all, garrulous. — Ungoliant (Falai) 08:22, 16 October 2013 (UTC)
