Pronounced: PLUN-der-bund, noun
Notes: Some people may be able to make a good guess at this word
The word invigilate means “to keep watch : supervise, monitor”
Background / Comments
This word has a Latin root : vigilare (to stay awake); the same root gave us vigilant. Oddly enough, another descendant is reveille. I wonder what kind of work environment we would have if “supervisors” were referred to as “invigilators”? I don’t know if that’s even a valid word, but it sounds like a fun alternative.
This word goes way back; it came into English in the mid-1500s
