Definition

(of a voice or tone) strong, clear and loud, deep and robust, stentorian, ringing – pompous, bombastic, grandiloquent, magniloquent, self-important, wordy, aureate, verbose, flowery, declamatory, sonorous, long-winded

Example

How do we know the difference between pride and arrogance? After dealing with an arrogant and orotund person, we do not feel like rejoicing. Something warns us that the other might or already does harm us to keep alive his or her alleged superiority. While arrogance can remain a hidden, temporary, and for some a relatively harmless quality, it can also lead to spreading rumors, poisoning the well, attempts to ostracize others, and overt abuse.
