Notes: You may be able to guess this one; the history of the word was interesting
The word transpicuious means “easily seen through or understood”
The trans- part of the word is a clue to the origin; the word comes from Latin — trans- (across) plus specere (to look). The specere part is the source of many English words: spectator and spectacles are well known, but also suspect, spectrum, bishop (overseer), espionage, and several others.
This word showed up in the mid-1600s.
