To go around in different ways.
"Circumvent' and "circumnavigate" both start with the prefix " circum-," which comes from the Latin word "circum," which means "around."
“Circumvent” means to go around or bypass something; to avoid it.
“Circumnavigate” means to sail or fly around something.
So both "circumvent" and "circumnavigate" mean "to go around," but "circumvent" means to go around in a way that you avoid something, and "circumnavigate" means to go around in way that you experience, explore, or travel through or over something.
