If possible, I'd be very appreciated it if you find and show me which entry that 'around' equals in any dictionary.


"Around" is used here as in a trip around loop. In a repeated process, each iteration can be considered "going around".

For example, "The first time I baked a potato, it exploded. The second time around, I poked holes in it with a fork before putting it in the microwave."
