Bloviate

Bloviate

<blow-vee-ate>

rant; babble; boast;

to speak pompously without saying anything important.

He will bloviate all day. He will waste your time with useless chatter.

Memory trick:
bloviate reminds of blow.
we blow hard when we talk too much.

At work:
Don't bloviate when you give your speech. Speak clearly and say something of value.
