Turbinate: Master, can I become off-hand?

A reel, you were!
A trail, you have been!
A scroll, you are!
A caracole, you will continually be!

Xenia Epigram
Please take from me this page,
     focussing on the term turbinate
Used by many a linguist sage,
     seeking a term for disseminate

Just wait a bit and you may find,
     better than any an anagram,
when coders have more time,
     a much better fitting epigram.

May I cast a meter, proclaimed so pupils might see
Newly exalting summaries, faintly informing, and oh now bestowed free?
Scroll or volute look way too absolute. But is binding?
Corkscrew, helix? - or tailspin, trephine? Damn! I deserted winding!
I reason spiraling and therefore convolute, but broadly ought I
- throw concepts so - notations crafted with computers spry?

There was a young girl from Alix,
She needed a word for helix.
      Not the general?
      But then thought spiral!
That literate gal from Alix.
