Merriam-Webster’s Word of the Day for July 22, 2020 is:

requisite • \REK-wuh-zut\  • adjective

: needed for a particular purpose : essential, necessary

Examples:

“Once the application process was formalized, the Institute received nearly two hundred applications from women all across the country; other women interested in applying had been turned away because they didn’t have the requisite qualifications.” — Maggie Doherty, The Equivalents, 2020

“More chile sauce, if you want a vinegary zing, is on the tables, along with the requisite paper towels. As for that stellar taco, it’s made with the same flavorful carnitas with … a drizzle of avocado crema that sets off taste-tingling fireworks.” — The Texas Monthly, 26 Feb. 2020

Did you know?

Acquiring an understanding of where requisite comes from won’t require a formal inquiry. Without question, the quest begins with Latin quaerere, which means “to ask” or “to seek.” That word is ancestor to a number of English words, including acquire, require, inquiry, question, quest, and, of course, requisite. From quaerere came requirere, meaning “to ask again.” Repeated requests can express a need, and the past participle of Latin requirere, which is requisitus, came to mean “needed” or “necessary.” English acquired requisite when it was adopted into Middle English back in the 1400s.
