1. that flounders; that moves with awkward struggles
    • 1995, Nancy Bogen, Bagatelle--Guinevere ↗
      "With those precious burdens hanging before them and that walk of theirs, to say nothing of the flounderish feet, they made one think of three giant chickens just home from fishing with the catch of the day."
    The readers were expecting things to be a little more direct, and so they're probably feeling a bit flounderish.
  2. (figurative) (of a speech) moving from topic to topic, not focused
    I had a big flounderish diatribe written up, but this isn't the place for it.
