Ok, think my language has really deteriorated over the have decided to learn atleast two new words every week

Words for today:

1. Difficult to understand; abstruse.
2. Concerned with obscure subject matter.
e.g He is a poet's poet, says another admirer, sometimes recondite and always deeply aware of the formal tradition of poetry.

A whispering sound; a soft murmur.
e.g . . .the soft susurration of the wind through a stand of whistling thorn.

To laugh at with contempt; to subject to ridicule or make sport of; to mock; to scoff at.
e.g I had no desire to endorse idiocy -- but neither could I be seen to deride a colleague.
