WHAT DOES CIRCUMVOLUTION MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Circumlocution

Circumlocution refers to an ambiguous or roundabout figure of speech. Ambiguity means information that can have multiple meanings. For example, governmental income support to poor residents might be referred to as "welfare". Roundabout speech refers to using many words to describe something for which a concise expression exists. The vast majority of definitions found in dictionaries are circumlocutory. Circumlocution is often used by aphasics and people learning a new language, where in the absence of a word the subject can simply be described. Euphemism, innuendo, and equivocation are different types of ambiguous and roundabout language.
