The term yakety-yakking refers to the act of chatting excessively or talking excitedly without much purpose or relevance. Antonyms for this word include being silent, tranquil, or composed. Silence refers to the absence of sound, conversation or speech, whereas tranquility describes a peaceful situation in which everything is at ease. Being composed means being calm, collected, and self-controlled, and is therefore another antonym of yakety-yakking. Other opposites may include listening, hearing, or reflecting, all of which indicate a more thoughtful or introspective approach to communication, as opposed to simply talking non-stop without any consideration for your audience.
