    A way with words

    Hi,

    What does ‘a way with words’ in the following sentence mean?

    ‘He has a way with words. ‘

    Thanks,

    MG.

    Re: A way with words

    He is clever in his use of words. It usually means that someone is very fluent and verbal, and can be very persuasive. A confidence trickster will have a way with words, which means he can persuade people to do things they would not otherwise do.
