Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for July 3, 2022 is:

To teem with something is to be full of that thing, or to have much of that thing inside.

// The river teems with fish.

// The students' minds were teeming with ideas.

Examples:

"Emily Wells' orchestral pop teems with grandly despairing gestures—synth tones as thick and black as crude oil, woodwinds like fluttering wings in the upper reaches of a condemned building." — Jayson Greene, Pitchfork, 21 Apr. 2022

Did you know?

Teem and team are not just homophones, they are also etymological kin. Teem comes from Old English tīman or tǣman, which originally meant "to bring forth offspring" or "to give birth to.” That word is related to the ancestor of team, the Old English noun tēam, meaning "offspring, lineage, or group of draft animals." Team can still be used to refer to a brood of young animals, especially pigs or ducks, but both teem and team have otherwise largely left their offspring-related senses behind.
