Argute – adj. shrewd.
This is a great new adjective to learn. As a testament to its underappreciatedness there are few non-dictionary references to the word Argute on the web.
In my research I discovered that there is a set of items from Final Fantasy XI called the Argute Attire Set. It’s interesting how video games will appropriate obscure words to make things sound more fantasy-like.
Argute is also the female plural form of the Italian adjective Arguto, which means basically the same thing as the English Argute.
