I've searched the forum but found no answer to my question. How would one say obviously in Latin? As in answering a question with a "it's option b, obviously!" Online dictionaries have given me all sorts of possible translations and I don't have a clue which one is the correct option. Would it be evidenter?
Ben Kovitz listed some relevant words in his comment and Sebastian Koppehel added some more. In the case you mention ("this option is obviously correct") I think the most natural option is to use and adverb derived from an adjective. The others feel too weak for such an emphatic use, much like "indeed" is weaker (and otherwise different too) than "obviously". More importantly, you seem to want to use the word independently rather than as a part of a sentence, and that rules out many words. I don't think you could just cry out Quippe!…
The candidates seem to be:
- Clare: brightly, clearly, aloud
- Sane: healthily, well, truly, certainly
- Vere: truthfully
- Certe: certainly, surely
- Plane: plainly, simply, clearly
- Evidenter: evidently, manifestly
- Manifesto: clearly, evidently, manifestly
- Aperte: openly, clearly, plainly
I think the ones that come closest in tone to "obviously" are manifesto (from manifestus) plane (from planus). The one you mention, evidenter (from evidens), is also a good option. See the linked dictionary entries for more details on my top candidates. None of the three match "obviously" perfectly, but they are the closest I can think of for the use case you have.
