Don't have anything to add from a scientific point of view, but from
a personal perspective, I believe that verbal fluency is (partially)
a learned skill.
I belonged to a little theatre group in college, and found that it
increased my verbal skills tremendously. I even frightened myself with
my abilities to be convincing, even when I knew in my heart that I
know what I was talking about (Regan effect).
I would recommend little theatre or a group like Toastmasters.
