volubiles[fontem recensere]

Quod est molestia cum hoc verbo?--Jondel (disputatio) 06:56, 19 Iunii 2016 (UTC)

I didn't mark it dubsig, but its basic meaning is "turning or wheeling rapidly". It was once used by Cicero of a person who was bubbling over with words ("quádam praecipiti celeritate dicendi") -- that is the implication of "voluble" in English, too, I guess.

OK Andrew, thank you.--Jondel (disputatio) 14:58, 19 Iunii 2016 (UTC)
As an adjective describing someone's speech, "volubilis" is a criticism; more neutral perhaps is "currens" (Cicero used this). To apply it to a person (cf. modern English He is fluent) you might say "Graece facile loquitur", "Graece currenter loquitur" he speaks Greek easily/fluently. And possibly someone else will have a better idea ... Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 15:07, 19 Iunii 2016 (UTC)
