    Smile looking for a verb

    Please, dear teachers and friends,

    I am looking for a verb that describes the act of talking too much and people who are trying to hear, don't understand a single word.

    For example:

    John has been speaking for hours, but nobody can understand nothing, he must see a phonoaudiologist doctor.

    Thanks!
