Classic Usage: Jane’s joy at her newly found cousins, combined with her recently gained inheritance have her hatching a plan: “Good fortune opens the hand as well as the heart wonderfully; and to give somewhat when we have largely received, is but to afford a vent to he the unusual ebullition of the sensations.”
Classically Mad Usage: Jane is just so nice, and so sweet and so generous. I wish I were more like Jane. When I heard the definition of this word all that came to my mind was gruel. It’s ebullitions certainly set me into fits of ebullition.
