Interlocutor

REVEALING  ASTONISHING AND MOST PROFOUND REALIZATIONS FOR THE NEW WORLD ORDER

n. — one who takes part in a dialogue, discussion, or conversation
— with a possessive pronoun, one who takes part in conversation on behalf of another

fm. Latin, inter (between) + loqui (to speak)

The same Latin root gives us eloquence, elocution, and soliloquy — at least two of which would be mighty useful in the current political climate.

first published. 1518

inspiration. David Rennie of The Economist, speaking on the “special relationship” in the times of Trump via NPR:

“Very few people in the British government would have probably chosen Donald Trump as their sort of interlocutor.”
