Pronounced: prih-HEN-suh-bull, adj

Notes: I got this word unnecessarily confused with another word

Yesterday’s word

The word scrutable means “capable of being understood”

First usage

Our word came into English in the early 1600s

Background / Comments

We are all more familiar with ‘inscrutable’; I was not aware that scrutable was a word. It comes from the Latin word scrutari (to examine), which – oddly – comes from scruta (trash).
