An oral will, usually in a deathbed situation, before witnesses who later testify to its authenticity.
An oral will made by a testator/testatrix, before an insufficient number of witnesses, just prior to death. Nuncupative wills depend on the oral testimony of those witnesses present as proof. They are illegal in several states and are enforceable in others only if they meet specific guidelines.
A verbal will that must have two witnesses and can only deal with the distribution of personal property. A nuncupative will is considered a "deathbed" will, meaning that it is a safety for people struck with a terminal illness and robbed of the ability or time to draft a proper written will.
