Pronounced: YOO-bur-tee, noun

Notes: This is another word that looks like an initial letter is missing, but it is really its own word

Yesterday’s word

The word recondite means “dealing with, or related to, difficult, dense, or complex topics”

First usage

Our word came into English in the mid-1600s

Background / Comments

I tend to use the alternate pronunciation. Also, I’m not sure where I’ve read this word, but perhaps in Rex Stout’s books about Nero Wolfe. Anyway, our word comes the Latin word reconditus (hidden).
