(pronounced ROHT)

As a noun, rote means unconscious, mechanical routine or repetition or the use of recall, often with little brainpower. As an adjective, rote means learned or memorized by rote.

Example: Learning the parameters by rote worked for Vivica when she went to take the LEED AP Exam, but it certainly didn’t do her any good when she found herself trying to explain to her firm’s client the intricate details and philosophy behind certain benchmarks found in the LEED Certification system.
