Falar pelos cotovelos is formed by three words: the verb falar (to talk), that is a verb of the first conjugation, ended -AR:
Ele ou ela fala
Eles ou elas falam
He or she talks
The preposition por, plus the article o, the elbows here in our arms. So, this is falar pelos cotovelos: It’s when a person starts talking and talking (just like him). What is he talking about? It doesn’t make sense, I am not interested in learning that!
