Hello
I need help on this word.
OBSTRUENT.I found it in the phrase
"Just as inflection, in contrast with agglutination, seemed appropriate to the Indo-European languages, so did the system of OBSTRUENTS in Greek and Latin.
Thanks in advance.

    I had to look it up too, and I suspect that most native-English speakers will, too, as this is a very specialized term, and unless you're directing your communication at PhD's in linguistics, don't use it. :)
