Able to convert one's thoughts and emotions into words. Those who are articulate can use large, 'higher-level' words in their sentences without making a conscious effort to do so.
Just because somebody types without proper grammar doesn't make them inarticulate; after all, why does it matter whether or not you waste your time trying to add proper punctuation.

Jan 18 Word of the Day
1. Blue Monday is the most depressing day of the year, calculated by Dr. Cliff Arnall, a researcher at the University of Cardiff's Center for Lifelong Learning.
Factors used to calculate the date included weather conditions, debt level, time since Christmas, time since failing our New Year's resolutions, low motivation and feeling the need to take action.

In 2005 the date was calculated as January 24th, in 2006 it was January 23rd, and in 2007 it was January 22nd.

2. A song by the hard rock band Orgy from their album Candy Ass.
1. Guy: "Aw man, I feel like absolute shit today."
Friend: "Yeah, same here. I hate Blue Monday."

2. "I wish I could sing Blue Monday to my ex-girlfriend, she's such a bitch."

(adj) Well-spoken, possessing a talent for lucid and effortless speech.

A secret racial slur against blacks. When a black person delivers an impressive speech, interview, or story and is complimented as articulate, their temper will boil on sight. The tenuous implication being, you were surprised they could even speak.
"...and those are the biggest ways Aristotle differed from Plato's teaching."

"I have to agree, that was quite an articulate discourse"

A big word that fills space in a sentence when one doesn't really know what he or she is talking about, i.e. an excuse for sounding dumb when trying to sound smart. Heard most often in art schools or cinema study classes.
I think Herzog's last film was... well the direction was... I don't know if I can articulate this well...

I may not articulate this well, but the piece says so much by saying so little.
