    I think it means exhibition of tents of Hottentots. Because I pieced several parts of the phrase together......it is a valid word too.

    I know it from some corrections courses I took a while back.

    I know the answer, but won't divulge same, in case you were looking for someone else's answer.

    How about: Quotidian?

    Commonplace. I know this because I'm South Asian and it's used to describe malaria all the time.

    Then I would imagine in southeast Asia malaria is indeed a quotidian occurrence.

    How about apodictical?

    Can you show apodictically that apodictical is a proper word?

    Please give an apodictic reference.
