    Re: make a point

    To take somebody through something and, why not, talk round somebody, too. Keep in mind the word explaining.

    Re: make a point

    talk around: persuade.

    I also know 'talk someone into something' = persuade.

    I talked them around to my point of view.
    I didn't want to come to the party but she talked me into it.
