Word of the Week: Prevaricate

verb / pre-vair-i-kate

To deviate from the truth

Equivocate (which I definitely thought meant compare?)

Ex: Southern people tend to embellish and often prevaricate in order to infuse more romance into the story.

My goal is to use this word thrice in conversation this week. I’ll report back!



I'd love to hear from you!
