It might seem obvious that ‘obvious’ begins with an ‘o’.
But it is less obvious, to some, that the second letter is a ‘b’.
A lot of people don’t pronounce the ‘b’.
That’s fine, indeed it can seem a little affected to insist on enunciating the ‘b’.
But if the ‘b’ is not heard then the spelling of obvious can, in fact, be less than obvious.
But what is fundamentally obvious is that ‘obvious’ begins with an ‘o’.
So it seemed the obvious choice for today.
