Definition : mellifluous
  1. A mellifluous voice or piece of music is gentle and pleasant to listen to.

When I was little, the mellifluous or pleasant tones of our preacher's voice put me right to sleep in church. My mother was shocked at my dozing off in response to his mellifluous or sweet-sounding voice. Even the agreeable melodies and mellifluous tones of the choir would keep lulling me to sleep. Then, when we would get home, my grandmother used to stroke my hair and sing to me in a tender, mellifluous voice, sending me off to dreamland where I didn't have to wake up.
What does it mean when a voice is mellifluous?
  1. It is gentle and soothing.
  2. It bores you completely.
  3. It can carry a tune well.

Memory Hook
Flowing Flute Melody:The flowing melody singing forth from the mellifluous notes of the flute soothed us all.
Examples
  1. Smiley, 41, drops into a stereotypical public radio announcer's voice - soft, mellow and mellifluous - to illustrate the difference between what public radio listeners expect and what he offers. -The Washington Post
  2. The secret to enjoying these pictures is to realize that nothing can duplicate the glories of ****ens's sweeping plots, colorful characters, and mellifluous prose, so all screen adaptations are bound to be un-****ensian from the get-go. -The Christian Science Monitor
  3. The writing is superb, and kudos should go to Morgan Freeman, whose intelligent delivery and mellifluous voice give life to the narration. -USA Today
  4. The tension was there in his deep, rich, unmistakable voice: a mellifluous baritone that conveyed a grave authority, while a strangled quaver hinted at vulnerability and doubt. -Newsweek

GESTICULATE

1) To make gesture while speaking commonly with hands
2) To say something with gestures alone

Mnemonic:
Gesticulate sounds like someone has gastric trouble. Well, if someone does have gastric trouble, he would gesticulate a lot because of the gastric trouble that brews within. Further, gesticulate can be learnt with the help of that one person in our environment who uses lot of hand movements while talking.

Examples:
1) Despite his high intellect he could not score in extempore because he gesticulated through the entire speech. (Verb)
2) His speech is replete with gesticulations. (Adjective)
3) His intention to intimidate his classmates is clear when his behaviour is gesticulatory. (Adjective)
4) He is an eminent gesticulator. (Noun)
5) He signalled peril with his gesticulatory behaviour. (Adjective)
No fool like an old fool. http://www.pagalguy.com/forums/cat-and-related-bschools/pagalguy-dream-team-2012-t-83955/p-3594200/r-4344097
