/glark/ To figure something out from context. "The System III manuals are pretty
poor, but you can generally glark the meaning from context." Interestingly, the
word was originally "glork"; the context was "This gubblick contains many
nonsklarkish English flutzpahs, but the overall pluggandisp can be glorked [sic]
from context" (David Moser, quoted by Douglas Hofstadter in his "Metamagical
Themas" column in the January 1981 "Scientific American"). It is conjectured
that hackish usage mutated the verb to "glark" because glork was already an
established jargon term.
Compare grok, zen.
