Prolix means tediously prolonged speech or writing; tending to speak or write at great length. I suppose I should go on at great length about prolix and make this a suitable posring. However, as I am not normally inclined to wordiness, verbosity and garrulousness I'll finish now...


  1. Umm... I'm afraid I have full-blown prolix. Or would that be prolixity?

  2. Is some who is normally inclined to wordiness, verbosity, and garrulousness then prolixious? My first visit and enjoyed it! Thanks!
