SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

blurt (verb) say something without intending to say it or thinking carefully about it.

When you say something without the intention of saying it, and just on the spur of the moment, you blurt it out. 'The boy blurted out that he had stolen the book.' This means, the boy said it even before others expected him to say it, perhaps out of fear or nervousness, and not thinking carefully about it.

  • Though Sam and James decided not to tell others of the program, Sam in his excitement blurted it out to his friends, even as James was trying to stop him.
  • Even before the police thought of threatening him, Cliff blurted out his involvement in the crime, because of his fear of torture.
