Rediscovered words

June 4th, 2008 · Posted by Skuds in Life · No Comments · Life

Yesterday’s Guardian carried a small story about the Tate gallery having an exhibition of paintings by Western artists that have an Eastern subject. The headline was “Gateway to the East: Tate shows rediscovered works” but it the story itself contains something of a rediscovered word… look in the antepenultimate paragraph and there is the quote:

There is a big market for this kind of painting in the Middle East which problematises the view that these works can only be seen in a western context

Problematises? Amazingly, it turns out to be a real word!  Not sure it is being used correctly in that context, but its hard to tell: the definition is a bit opaque.
