Amble is an adjective meaning “almost, but not quite enough” or “almost, but not quite more than enough.” A good heuristic for remembering that amble is somewhat less than ample is that the letter b comes way before the letter p in the alphabet.

Then again, by the time The Words Project gets to it in the not too distant future, ample will likely mean something completely different. So, never mind.
