the word is “pundit”, not “pundint”
there is no such word as “pundint”
Actually, that’s not so:
there is such a word as “pundint”
–I’ve just invented it.
A punDINT is a person
who thinks the word is “pundint”
[A subsidiary question:
What explains that urge to insert an “N”
into “pundit”; is it an urge to improve, to correct?
To make it sound right.
I’ll guess it’s because we have very few “dit” syllables
“Pundit” is derived from the Hindu/Sanskrit “pandita”
meaning, “a holy man”. I imagine it was the British Empire
that brought it west.
