Entry:    apposite (adj.)

Definition:  Well put or applied; appropriate, suitable (to).

Other:    Here is a good example of where this blog is useful.  Truthfully, I’d always thought apposite meant something somewhat opposite of its actual definition.
Can also be: Of persons: Ready with appropriate remarks, apt. Obs.
