What is a lanky boy?
Use the adjective lanky to describe someone who's tall, thin, and a little bit gawky. A lanky person is not only tall and thin but also a little bit awkward. You wouldn't use lanky to describe a tall, slender person who moves gracefully. Instead use lanky to describe someone who moves clumsily on his long limbs.
