Italian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Probably onomatopoeic in origin. Likely cognate with Spanish charlar (to chat). Possibly contributes to the original sense of ciarlatano (charlatan), formed after Carlomagno (Charlemagne), for the fantastic stories told by romancers of his paladins [1]. Conversely still, a derivation from Latin ex (from, out of) + hariolor (I foretell; I prattle) has been conjectured, cognate with Latin haruspex[2].

Verb[edit]

ciarlare

  1. (intransitive) to chatter, gossip
