#WOTD: Vociferous

Vociferous [voh-sif-er-uh s] is an adjective derived from Latin word vociferārī meaning “to shout,” and “vox,” which means “voice.” The word “vociferous” entered English in the early 1600s.

According to merriam-webster, vociferous means expressing feelings or opinions in a very loud or forceful way. To be vociferous means to be strongly and vocally in support of something. You can’t act vociferously if you’re silent.

Here are some examples of the use of “vociferous” in sentences:

  • The decision was made over their vociferous objections.
  • The Jak Mania vociferously supports Persija in Indonesia Soccer League.
