This, from the wonderful Wordsmith:
adjective, also used as a noun:
1. Using a roundabout form of expression; wordy.
2. Formed by the use of two or more words instead of inflection.
“daughter of John” (compared with “John’s daughter)
“It did happen” (compared with “It happened”)
“more stupid” (compared with “stupider”)
“Do you have” (compared with “Have you”)
What a fab word for an English word nerd, whose German vocab and grammar, or lack thereof, force huge amounts of periphrasticity from her humble lips.
