Ribald GRE Vocabulary Flashcard

/ˈrɪb.əld/ (adj)

Definition

humorous but rude use of language, vulgar, lewd, gross, coarse, funny, indelicate, obscene

Example

So what’s your experience? Can you tell a funny story, which is not too ribald? Why not? What is the difference between you and that charismatic colleague? Does your social anxiety limit you to socialize? Or do you feel it’s hard as an introvert to connect?

Maybe your stories are too long, anticlimactic, or just not funny. Or do you tell them all scrambled up, going back and forth, mixing up the punch line?

As you mess up, you feel people pulling out, disconnecting from the conversation, focusing on something more entertaining. Your courage seeps out, you start sweating as you’re barely able to mumble the end of your story.
