From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 [gcide]:

  Prolix \Pro*lix"\ (?; 277), a. [L. prolixus extended, long,
     prolix, probably fr. pro before, forward + liqui to flow,
     akin to liquidus liquid; cf. OL. lixa water: cf. F. prolixe.
     See {Liquid}.]
     [1913 Webster]
     1. Extending to a great length; unnecessarily long; minute in
        narration or argument; excessively particular in detail;
        -- rarely used except with reference to discourse written
        or spoken; as, a prolix oration; a prolix poem; a prolix
        sermon.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              With wig prolix, down flowing to his waist.
                                                    --Cowper.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     2. Indulging in protracted discourse; tedious; wearisome; --
        applied to a speaker or writer.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     Syn: Long; diffuse; prolonged; protracted; tedious; tiresome;
          wearisome.
  
     Usage: {Prolix}, {Diffuse}. A prolix writer delights in
            circumlocution, extended detail, and trifling
            particulars. A diffuse writer is fond of amplifying,
            and abounds in epithets, figures, and illustrations.
            Diffuseness often arises from an exuberance of
            imagination; prolixity is generally connected with a
            want of it.
            [1913 Webster]

From WordNet (r) 3.0 (2006) [wn]:

  prolix
      adj 1: tediously prolonged or tending to speak or write at great
             length; "editing a prolix manuscript"; "a prolix lecturer
             telling you more than you want to know" [ant: {concise}]
