Word of the Week Wednesday: obviate


This Wednesday’s Word of the Week is: obviate.

To obviate is to eliminate the need for something or to avoid a future difficulty, generally through the use of proper precaution.

I do tend to use this word quite a bit because, even though it’s relatively rare, I haven’t come across another word that means quite the same.
