Entry: sub-rosa


In context: "How many sub-rosa twins are there, out there, really?"

Definition: ‘under the rose’, in secret, secretly.

Other:I was pretty excited to get to this entry.  I had some sense of what the word meant from reading it in a few contexts, so the definition wasn't a surprise.  The Wikipedia page is absolutely worth reading!

SNOOT score: 4
