recently begun; at an early stage of formation
My book is still in an inchoate form, but I feel that when it is completed, perhaps within five years, it will be at least eight hundred pages long.
choate seems like "chote". for example "chote bachche" means not fully grown up or in the initial stage of life. inch (o)+ate i've "just begun" to eat an inch inchoate ~ in + [ch] aos + st [ate]
