Why this word?

“Transpicuous” means something is transparent, or can be seen through. It can be in a literal sense, as in a crystal-clear glass window, or it can be used in a more figurative sense — for example, when you’re trying to be transpicuous about your feelings for your new partner. Either way, it’s easy to see.
