digress

(verb) Lose clarity or turn aside especially from the main subject of attention or course of argument in writing, thinking, or speaking.

Synonyms: divagate, stray, wander

Usage: I try not to digress too much during my lectures, but I am not always successful at avoiding tangential topics.

And speaking of digressions, let's corral some of wandering gress family: aggressive, congress, egress, regress, ingress, ogress, progress, retrogress, and transgress. This herd was sired by the Latin word, gradi "to walk, step, go."
