Un moulin à paroles

Un moulin à paroles can literally be translated by “a mill for words”. Meaning? If someone is un moulin à paroles, it means that he/she is very talkative, a “chatterbox”. It has been used since the 18th century. Like the mill which doesn’t stop grinding grains, un moulin à paroles can’t stop talking or chatting!
