Pronounced: A-bruh-gate (the ‘A’ is a short a, as in “mat”), verb
Notes: I confuse this word with “abdicate”
The word obvert means “to turn so as to show a different side”
This word goes back to the late 1500s
Background / Comments
I should have had a good guess because the obverse is the main side of something (it’s the opposite of the reverse side of something). This word comes from Latin obvertere (to turn toward), from ob- (toward) and vertere (to turn).
