词源(Etymology)

1751, from earlier term colloquy (a conversation), from Latin colloquium (conference, conversation), from con- (together) + loquor (to speak), + -al.

发音(Pronunciation)

形容词(Adjective)

colloquial (comparative more colloquial, superlative most colloquial)

  1. (linguistics) Denoting a manner of speaking or writing that is characteristic of familiar conversation, of common parlance; informal.

  2. Of or pertaining to a conversation; conversational or chatty.

用法注意(Usage notes)

It is a common misconception that colloquial somehow denotes "local" or a word being "regional". This is not the case; the word root for colloquial is related to locution, not location.

Note that while colloquy and colloquium refer to formal conversation, colloquial refers instead specifically to informal conversation.
