This word was provoked by my daily study of Spanish. The infinitive in Spanish for "to explain" is "explicar". For a Germanic language English has borrowed heavily from Latin (about 50%) and her daughters. It strikes me how relatively (another Spanish similacrum) easy it is to build up a Spanish vocabulary. Conjugating verbs is another issue.

One of the things I enjoy about language is how words are related and interconnect. Explicate is related to ply, just as eleemosynary and alms are.
