Grok (pronounced GROCK) is a verb from Robert A. Heinlein's science fiction novel, Stranger in a Strange Land (1961). In it a Martian visits earth and brings his language from Mars. Grok means to understand, especially in an intuitive way. It's the Martian equivalent of to "get it", and the youth culture adopted this new word into the English language.
