Some of my friends asked me if “bloviate” is a real word, after reading this newsletter :) Here is how four dictionaries define it:

- to speak a lot in an annoying way as if you are very important (Cambridge)

- to speak or write verbosely and windily (Merriam-Webster)

- to talk at length, esp in an insubstantial but inflated manner (Collins)

- to talk or write in a way that shows that you think you know a lot and have something important to say, when in fact you do not know much and have nothing important to say (Oxford Learner’s)
