Obnubilate -

cloud over, darken, or obscure.

Example: The teenage boy's bangs may have been in style, but they also served to obnubilate his vision.

  1. I do love learning new words. No matter how many times I say this one, it feels strange in my mouth. =)

    1. I know what you mean, Ruth. I have a feeling I would probably choose to use the word obscure before this one, but as you know, I love words!

  3. I like the sound of this word, but it is a bit of a mouthful. Ditto, Ruth.

    1. I've said it before that I should write a short story using as many of these whimsical words as possible. Hmmm...maybe a contest would be in order. ^_^ Thanks, Debbie.
