Pronunciation: Ver-beh-trait

Sentence: As a self-absorbed bipedal anthropoid vertebrate Jenny found herself often unable to communicate effectively with others of her kind, largely due to her grandiose verbosity, vective and vacillation. She was thus a verbetrate and spent most of her time quakkety-yakking (but ducks were not such good listeners), gibbon-gabbing, and slither-blathering.

Etymology: Verb: doing word, such as 'speaking'; Vertebrate: animals with backbones, such as mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, amphibians, but not politicians. This group is obviously so big that the few members who are actually human are neglible. I note this word is often misspelled as 'verbetrate' by an interposition of the "b" and the "t", hence found as such in google. Betray: turn to the 'other' side, ie. talk to the animals rather than humans.. Also Verberage and of course Verbotomy.
