    To figure something out from context. “The System III manuals are pretty poor, but you can generally glark the meaning from context.” Interestingly, the word was originally ‘glork’; the context was “This gubblick contains many nonsklarkish English flutzpahs, but the overall pluggandisp can be glorked [sic] from context” (David Moser, quoted by Douglas Hofstadter in his Metamagical Themas column in the January 1981 Scientific American).
