Definition of hyperbolic:
- "A Canadian Bankclerk", J. P. Buschlen.
- "Murder in the Gunroom", Henry Beam Piper.
We are accustomed to bestow so lightly this last hyperbolic honour- hyperbolic always, even when we are speaking of a Homer or a Shakspeare, if only we project the vision far enough forward through time- that the comparative ease with which it is to be earned has itself come to be exaggerated.- "Sterne", H.D. Traill.
