Excogitate – Let me think on that. .
Today’s word comes to you from the Latin “excogitat” literally meaning ‘found by process of thought,’. a Delicious combination of the prefix ex for ‘out of’ and the verb cogitare – to think.
This is for all my knowledge-vores who get a taste of a topic, an art, a craft, a language, any field of study and just dive right in face first to learn EVERYTHING about it!
Also for my grounded individuals who understand the importance of researching a topic fully before giving an opinion. Should anyone ever press you for information before you feel ready, whip out the phrase: This will require further excogitation. It’s the “I’m right on top of that Rose!” for smartypants people 😀
Now go forth and excogitate!
Worth a mention: I checked the spelling about 7 times on this because spellcheck refused to acknowledge it as a word.
