A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
educe (i-DOOS, i-DYOOS) verb tr.
1. To draw out; to elicit, as something latent.
[From Latin educere (to draw out), from ex- (out of) + ducere (to lead). Ultimately from the Indo-European root deuk- (to lead) that led to other words such as duke, conduct, educate, duct, wanton, and tug.]
Duce (DOO-chay) is a loanword from Italian meaning a leader or dictator. Italian Fascist leader Benito Mussolini was known as Il Duce.
"For a growing number who don't mind putting serious money into home
audio, that means reintroducing vacuum tubes into audio components,
one of the latest methods designers are using in the never-ending
attempt to educe perfect sound, whether from vinyl or silicon."
An open mind is a prerequisite to an open heart. -Robert M. Sapolsky, neuroscientist and author (b. 1957)
