ebullient

(redirected from ebulient)

e·bul·lient

?(ĭ-bo͝ol′yənt, ĭ-bŭl′-)
adj.
1. Zestfully enthusiastic.
2. Boiling or seeming to boil; bubbling.

[Latin ēbulliēns, ēbullient-, present participle of ēbullīre, to bubble up : ē-, ex-, up, out; see ex- + bullīre, to bubble, boil.]

e·bul′lient·ly adv.
Usage Note: Traditionally, ebullient is pronounced (ĭ-bŭl′yənt), with a short u in the second syllable, as in gull. This is apparently still the preferred pronunciation in British English. In American English, the pronunciation (ĭ-bo͝ol′yənt), with the second syllable like bull, is now equally common.
