This is a word that I like to say, but I didn’t know the exact definition ’til I looked it up for this post. I found it in one of The Greatest Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. It is used in the beginning of Part Two, where Dr Watson reveals the history of the events that lead to a murder almost twenty years later. The murder which Sherlock Holmes investigates, and Dr Watson titles The Valley of Fear.

Gregarious – fond of the company of others

Usage: “Anyone could pick him at once as gregarious in his habits and communicative in his nature, with a quick wit and a ready smile.”
