My favorite word

Circumlocution (sûr'kəm-lō-kyōō'shən)
noun
  1. The use of unnecessarily wordy and indirect language.
  2. Evasion in speech or writing.
  3. A roundabout expression.
I'd use it more often in daily conversation, but I'm afraid it would make my speech unnecissarily wordy and indirect.
