Daphany’s Free Online Writing Workshop



1. a remark or statement used too often to be interesting or thoughtful; hackneyed

2. boring and having no meaning because of being said so many times.


I’ll use it in a sentence:

● The politician’s platitudinous remarks, were viewed as bogus, and predicated on a whole lot of mumbo jumbo.

● Kendra doesn’t watch the Oscars anymore, because the majority of the winners acceptance speeches, are platitudinous and gobbledygook.*

● Unfortunately, some of the benighted and insensitive people in the audience, viewed the intersex woman’s extemporaneous comments, as platitudinous and banal.

● Mrs. Michelle Obama’s oratory, is extraordinary and never platitudinous.

*DFOWW will do a presentation on the word: gobbledygook, sometime next month in June, 2019.

Next, on a sheet of paper or in the comment section below, write a few sentences, using the word: platitudinous.

Tip: Use the word during a conversation today. The more you familiarize yourself with this word, by consistently incorporating it in your vocabulary and writing, the easier it will be to remember the word. Figuratively speaking, you’ll own the word.
