|English term or phrase: Resistivity|
|Volume Resistivity and Surface Resistivity|
|Resistance, capacity for resistance (spesific to materials)|
Surface resistivity is the resistance to leakage current along the surface of an insulating material. Volume resistivity is the resistance to leakage current through the body of an insulating material. The higher the surface/volume resistivity, the lower the leakage current and the less conductive the material is.

1. the longitudinal electrical resistance of a uniform rod of unit length and unit cross-sectional area : the reciprocal of conductivity
2. capacity for resisting : RESISTANCE
From Merriam Webster's Collegiate Dictionary. For a delightful illustration of how resistivity can be measured, refer to the link below.
Best of luck!
