Words I Don't Know: 'O'

From the pages of my pocket-edition Webster's Dictionary:

obdurate: stubborn, unyielding

obfuscate: confuse, obscure (I know this one, but I think it's such a great word, I had to share)
obloquy: abusively detractive language, discredit, disgrace
obverse: facing observer, side of coin with design
obviate: to prevent by making uneccessary

I believe you've combined bits of two definitions for "obviate". The definition you list isn't quite right.

I'll let you sort it out so that you can learn something new today. :)

It's your fault for picking the word I knew.
