Victorian Slang of the Week–chatterbox

 

 

chatterbox–a person who talks incessantly. As early as 1774 but appears more regularly after 1814. I don’t see many references to this one either in Victorian times or in the 20th century, but given that it is now standard English, I expect it was used more often than proven by references.
