Fulsome

Fulsome

Fulsome: This term originally meant “abundant, generous, full” and it is still used in that form. However, the meaning of this word has changed to mean “excessive, effusive.” A fulsome society was considered a good thing, but now it could suggest an excessive and corrupt one. However, some have argued that the word is enjoying a renaissance and should be used again in its positive sense. Decide what you will but be aware of the possibility for misinterpretation.
