Secrete means to exude or ooze fluids or liquids. It is a term which is often used to describe the generation of hormones or cells from the body. Thus it is the act of releasing and emitting a fluid or a substance. The release of blood in the body is known as blood secretion for instance. This word is pronounced as seh-kREET. It is a verb form of the noun secretion.

This word also means to hide from sight or keep something as a secret. It is thus a variant of the word secret in this context. Thus it is another word for conceal or filch. The words opposite to secrete in this context are reveal, uncover, show tell etc. E.G. he secreted this fact from everybody including his family.
