A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
verb tr.: To turn so as to show a different side.
From Latin obvertere (to turn toward), from ob- (toward) + vertere (to turn). Ultimately from the Indo-European root wer- (to turn or bend), which is also the source of words such as wring, weird, writhe, worth, revert, and universe. Earliest documented use: 1583.
“The sun obverted its five o’clock face enough to darken the hardwood shadow of pine and oak along the creek.”
