Is there an English adjective
[A] such that the following two sentences are almost the same in meaning?
- "Joe is a very [A] person"
- "Joe is always asking questions"
The phrase "always asking questions" has connotations of being nosey, but that's not what I mean.
A question similar to mine was asked:
Assume Joe does NOT already know the answers to his question.
I want an adjective to describe someone who innocently asks questions on a regular basis, and they don't already know the answer.
"querulous" has negative connotations. I want something positive/friendly.
A word similar to "curious" might work.
However, "curious" people can sometimes be very quiet.
I am searching for a word which literally means "asks questions often," implying that they are a bit of a motor-mouth, rather than a shy, quiet person.
