Stop scratching your head with finger yeah there are ways to classify the way you talk.
It is not just when you use your tongue to articulate words; to transform your ideas, information or sometimes junk of your brain :D into intelligible words; to transfer those brainy things to another brain it is called you are talking. It is not just talking there are a lot words which indicate different conditions of talk.
The minister addressed public about new policies of government. Your boss addressed the agenda of next target with the team. Address is when you talk with a group to tell them about a topic.
A radio jockey specially on news channel enunciates. To pronounce each word clearly means Enunciate.
Articulate is also same but it is also related with the way to make sound like you can articulate french with right pronunciation. Means you can make right sounds while speaking french.
Remember your school days one of your friend who always pronounced words wrong and hard to understand he always mumbled.
And remind the day when your lie caught and you was talking like ooog... yyy....yeah aa...aa..I d...did tha..t your line was distorted you stuttered. Some people have trouble with tongue and they talk like this naturally, they also stutter. Stutter is when someone talk with distorted speech having interruptions by repeating of words.
When you bunked a class and went to canteen. Next day teacher asked to you that you were in school but not in class why? and you started answering like this: [you are not sure if he saw you in canteen or not]" I was in class but I went to library .."[looking at him if he want few more words or he is satisfied].. yeah to reissue books ...[still he is watching at you].. but... I forgot the books in my bag..and ..
you are talking around the truth but not wishing to tell it. You are equivocating.
Prevaricate is close synonym of equivocate but it tend to lie not roam around truth.
I think it is enough for today for li'll brain to grab.
