Prolix

Prolix

<proh-liks>

tedious; lengthy; rambling;

saying or writing something with too many words.

I find his writing to be prolix and boring.

Memory trick:
prolix reminds of prose and licks
saying too much prose makes us lick our dry lips

At work:
Your presentation is too prolix. Redo it with less words.
