Tips: To articulate means "to speak clearly," both in pronunciation and how you present your ideas. As an adjective, articulate is similar to coherent. Both are used to describe superb communication skills. Articulate can be used to describe clear and eloquent communication, while coherent can be used to describe logical and easily understood communication. Note the difference in pronunciation between the verb and adjective forms of articulate: The verb has a hard "a" as in the word "late," while the adjective is a soft "a."
