Excursive is an adjective that means tending to ramble.

Our word of the day is has its origin in the Latin word excurrere (ex coo RARE ay) which means ‘to extend’ or ‘run out.’ When it later evolved into English, it became a synonym of digressive or meandering.

My students always get excursive when discussing a topic they don’t care about. They tend to lose focus and drift into unrelated issues.
