I ran across this word in one of the novels I’m currently reading/listening to on Audible. I don’t recall having heard it before, so I am thrilled to learn this new-to-me adjective from Meriam-Webster’s Word of the Day.
Captious, KAP-shuss – adj.
Tending to find fault and raise objections; calculated to confuse, entrap, or entangle in argument.
Example: 1. The captious feedback from colleagues deflated her normally unshakable sense of confidence.
2. Befuddled by the captious questions, the suspect broke down and confessed to the crime.
Join me in using this word three to five times this week? (Though technically, I’ve already used it several times prepping for this post 🙂 )
Thanks for reading, I appreciate you!
