General definition (in Jainism)Source: Encyclopedia of Jainism: Tattvartha Sutra 7: The Five Vows
Maukharya (मौखर्य, “garrulity”) refers to “prattling senselessly” and represents one of the five transgressions (aticara) of the “vow of abstaining from purposeless” (anarthadaṇḍavirati): one of the seven supplementary vows (śīlavrata), according to the 2nd-century Tattvārthasūtra 32.—What is meant by garrulity (maukharya)? It is to indulge in meaningless and unrestrained talks out of arrogance recklessly.
Jainism is an Indian religion of Dharma whose doctrine revolves around harmlessness (ahimsa) towards every living being. The two major branches (Digambara and Svetambara) of Jainism stimulate self-control (or, shramana, ‘self-reliance’) and spiritual development through a path of peace for the soul to progess to the ultimate goal.

Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
