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