move about aimlessly or without any destination, often in search of food or employment
You ramble when your talking or your walking goes on and on and on. And on. You’re in no hurry to make a point or get to your destination — if there is one at all.
The word ramble comes from similar roots as roam. They both mean wander, but they’re often used a little differently. You might roam around on vacation to relax or find adventure. If you’re a shark, you roam the deep sea for food. On the other hand, if the person on the plane next to you chatters nervously and can’t stop, you wish they wouldn’t ramble on like that.
漫步这个词来自与漫游相似的词根。它们都是 wander 的意思，但它们的用法经常略有不同。您可能会在假期四处闲逛以放松身心或寻找冒险。如果你是鲨鱼，你会在深海中游荡寻找食物。另一方面，如果你旁边的飞机上的人紧张地喋喋不休而且停不下来，你希望他们不要那样喋喋不休。

ramble (v.)mid-15c., ramblen, “to wander, roam about in a leisurely manner,” perhaps frequentative of romen “to walk, go” (see roam), perhaps via romblen (late 14c.) “to ramble.” The vowel change is perhaps by influence of Middle Dutch rammelen, a derivative of rammen “copulate,” “used of the night wanderings of the amorous cat” [Weekley], or the Middle English word might be from the Dutch one. Meaning “to talk or write incoherently” is from 1630s. Related: Rambled; rambling.Related entries & more
