- Without covering.
- Simply; merely; barely; in the abstract.
Though several single letters nakedly considered, are found to be articulations only of spirit or breath, and not of breath vocalized; yet there is that property in all letters of aptness, to be conjoined in syllables. Holder.
- Discoverably; evidently.
So blinds the sharpest counsels of the wise
This overshadowing Providence on high,
And dazzleth all their clearest sighted eyes,
That they see not how nakedly they lie. Daniel Civil War.
