verbose \vuhr-BOHS\, adjective:
Abounding in words; using or containing more words than are necessary; tedious by an excess of words; wordy; as, "a verbose speaker; a verbose argument."

One reason I admire Oscar is that he's the least verbose, if sometimes plain to the point of being uninteresting.
