Though this fun word can officially have a slightly negative slant, it’s you traditionally hear it used in a very positive way. Think of the “bull” in ebullient as “boil,” and it’ll help you to remember the definition. What is the state of boiling liquid” It’s bubbly! Now that could be bubbly as in agitated, but think of it lively, enthusiastic, and exuberant.
