Today's word is “obnubilate”, spelled O-B-N-U-B-I-L-A-T-E
Obnubilate is a verv that means to becloudor to obscure..
Here is the word used in a sentence by MatthewBeaumont from Nightwalking A Nocturnal History of London,
Early street lighting had thedisconcerting effect of obnubilating as well as illuminating urban space.
The meaning of obnubilate becomes clearerwhen you know that its ancestors are the Latin terms ob- meaning in theway and nubes cloud. It's a high-flown sounding word, whichmay be why it often turns up in texts by and about politicians. This has beentrue for a long time. In fact, when the U.S. Constitution was up forratification, 18th-century Pennsylvania statesman James Wilson used obnubilateto calm fears that the president would have too much power: Our firstexecutive magistrate is not obnubilated behind the mysterious obscurity ofcounsellors…. He is the dignified, but accountable magistrate of a free andgreat people.
