context: In a meeting room, I'm trying to explain a complex concept to someone who does not understand. Then I go to the paper board and say:

I'm going to draw a figure that will show you what I mean better than I can explain in words/convey with words.

Does the end of this sentence make sense?

    Personally, I like "convey with words" more than "explain in words".
    Is convey with words more natural? (It is supposed to be spoken language...)

    Would adequately fit well in the sentence?
    I'm going to draw a figure that will show you what I mean, better than I can adequately explain in words/adequately convey with words.
