Alveolar is an adjective that means “to be like Alvy Singer.” Alvy Singer was Woody Allen’s character in the 1977 movie Annie Hall, which Woody Allen co-wrote (with Marshall Brickman) and directed.

Thus, to say that someone is alveolar is to say that he is whiny, neurotic, ethnically Jewish, but philosophically secular and lucky and unlucky at love at different times. Women can also be referred to as alveolar, but because the word is derived from the character Alvy Singer, who was male, it is typically reserved for men.
