Examples of MAGNILOQUENT

The magniloquent sportscaster sometimes got so carried away with his monologues that he would forget to describe the action on the field.

 

“It [the television series Billions] features two outsize, magniloquent protagonists who are constant foils to one another: light and dark, good and evil, both cut from the same ambitious cloth and therefore destined to lock in an endless pas de deux of power.”
