There was the following passage in the New York Times (May 14) article under the title, “Wow, Jeb Bush is awful”:
The bottom line is that so far he seems to be a terrible candidate. He couldn’t keep his “I’m-my-own-man” mantra going through the spring. He over-babbled at a private gathering. He didn’t know how to answer the Iraq question, which should have been the first thing he tackled on the first day he ever considered that he might someday think for even a minute about running for president.
I understand “over＋babble” means “speak too much.” or “give hot air.” Am I right?
I can’t find the word in English dictionaries at hands, nor through google search.
Is it a common word being spoken in day-to-day conversation? Can I reprove my colleague who over-babbles in the meeting by saying “Don’t over-babble”?
