I've looked up "replicit" and it's not a word, or so I can tell. But I could swear that there's a word that sounds like "rep licit" which means "full of" or "abundant." "Rimplicit"? Nope. Does anyone know what the word might be?

You're probably thinking of replete, which fits with the definition you give. For example, one could say that a speech was replete with sentimentality.

Aha! "Replete" is exactly the word I'm looking for! – kalaracey Oct 7 '11 at 13:23
