tac•it (ˈtæs ɪt) 


early 17th century (in the sense ‘wordless, noiseless’): from Latin tacitus, past participle of tacere ‘be silent’.


1. done or made in silence; implied, but not expressed; silent; as, tacit consent is consent by silence, or by not interposing an objection.

2. (logic) not derived from formal principles of reasoning; based on induction rather than deduction.

3. unvoiced or unspoken: a tacit prayer.

[1595–1605; < Latin tacitus silent, past participle of tacēre to be silent]

tac′it•ly, adv.
tac′it•ness, n.

Tacit knowledge (as opposed to formal, codified or explicit knowledge) is the kind of knowledge that is difficult to transfer to another person by means of writing it down or verbalizing it. For example, stating to someone that London is in the United Kingdom is a piece of explicit knowledge that can be written down, transmitted, and understood by a recipient. However, the ability to speak a language, use algebra, or design and use complex equipment requires all sorts of knowledge that is not always known explicitly, even by expert practitioners, and which is difficult or impossible to explicitly transfer to other users.

While tacit knowledge appears to be simple, it has far reaching consequences and is not widely understood.
