    to elude so. verb fig. - sich jmds. Verständnis entziehen fig.

    Examples/ definitions with source references

    Es ist gar nicht leicht Quellen hierfür zu finden, aber die Wendung hört man desöfteren.

    Im Fall von "xyz eludes me" wäre sogar eine direktere Übersetzung "Die Bedeutung von xyz entzieht sich mir" möglich.
