Hear This One
By Annette Rey
You’ll love this one.
Grok – used in Stranger in a Strange Land (1961) by Robert A. Heinlein.
It is a verb and means to understand thoroughly and intuitively, and to communicate sympathetically.
It is considered slang so I would use the word in casual and informal writing.
Ratty, that’s why you be the boss, man. You grok that deal.
Grok this, Bugsy!
Delilah sure groks that boy.
I like the sound that word makes!
