Visual Thesaurus Word of the Day
Saturday, February 7th prevaricate Forked Tongue Word of the Day:
The pre- part of this Latinate verb meaning "deviate from strict truth" can throw you off since we have no "varicate." The Latin original meant "act in collusion," or literally, "straddle." Its only relative in modern English is the rather obscure divaricate, "branch off."
