     prolix, probably fr. pro before, forward + liqui to flow,
     akin to liquidus liquid; cf. OL. lixa water: cf. F. prolixe.
     See Liquid.]
     [1913 Webster]
     1. Extending to a great length; unnecessarily long; minute in
        narration or argument; excessively particular in detail;
        -- rarely used except with reference to discourse written
        or spoken; as, a prolix oration; a prolix poem; a prolix
        sermon.

        [1913 Webster]
  
     2. Indulging in protracted discourse; tedious; wearisome; --
        applied to a speaker or writer.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     Syn: Long; diffuse; prolonged; protracted; tedious; tiresome;
          wearisome.
  
     Usage: Prolix, Diffuse. A prolix writer delights in
            circumlocution, extended detail, and trifling
            particulars. A diffuse writer is fond of amplifying,
            and abounds in epithets, figures, and illustrations.
            Diffuseness often arises from an exuberance of
            imagination; prolixity is generally connected with a
            want of it.
            [1913 Webster]
