The word is Prevaricate


My new favorite word is Prevaricate

Pronounced /prih-VAIR-ih-keyt/

This word comes from Latin “praevaricatus / praevaricari” (to act in collusion, to straddle) from “prae-” + “varicare” (to straddle) from “varus” (bowlegged). It was first used in 1631.

Can you think of a way to use this one in a sentence? Here's one:
"Poor Pinocchio’s propensity to prevaricate perniciously promotes probiscal protuberance prolongation.”

Yikes! That's a tongue twister. Your turn! =]:)
