    The dictionary links are in the quote above. Click on "blurt" and you see your sentence from the original post. Here's the definition: "to say something suddenly and without thinking about the effect it will have, usually because you are nervous or excited". That doesn't exactly mean the person who blurts something out says it unintentionally, but they might wish they had thought a bit more before speaking.
