Oooh! Pick me! I can make an on-topic comment that demonstrates a keen,
astute, and good grasp of the reason for your post.  ;-)

allude, v.t.
: to make indirect reference; broadly : REFER

elude, v.t.
1 : to avoid adroitly : EVADE <the mice eluded the traps> <managed to
elude capture>
2 : to escape the perception, understanding, or grasp of <subtlety
simply eludes them> <victory continued to elude us>
3 : DEFY <it eludes explanation>
