    Default writing a sentence in another form

    Can someone please give me another way to write this sentence :
    he would keep “talking around the answer,” in some cases finally hitting upon the correct word or phrase almost by accident.

    ~ Thanks in advance ^^

    Default Re: writing a sentence in another form

    Can you describe the situation where you would want to say this. It's not clear to me why he'd do this if a single word or phrase is required and he knows that.
