Here is a context clues worksheet on the noun verbiage . It means, for the purposes of this worksheet, “a profusion of words usually of little or obscure content.” The word might define itself, although I would argue that in our current media environment, cluttered with the detritus found on way, way too many social media sites, this is probably a word, and certainly a concept, that students should understand.
