Pronunciation: fib-DEL-i-tee

Sentence: Fred was the consummate politician telling all new parliamentary members daly, that if you are must lie to the electorate, do it with spincerity. For, after all, you're doing it for their good, aren't you? Although, it cannot be said that Fred didn't have a political conscience, refusing to employ a spin-doctor, preferring to weave his own brand of fibdelity. But the most important piece of political wisdom he shared with his party's novice "gravy-trainers" was that, in the end, all that really counts in politics is having the numbers.

Etymology: FIB: to tell a white lie & FIDELITY: trust, trueheart, integrity.

Pronunciation: de/fact/choo/uh/lahyz

Sentence: Good politicians are able to defactualize freely and sincerely about any and every situation in order to gain the upper hand and score political points, depending on who they are talking to.

Etymology: DEFACTUALIZE - verb - from DE (do, or make the opposite of; reverse) + FACT (reality; truth) + CONCEPTUALIZE (a general notion or idea formed in the mind)


Excellent word! It is certainly one we could use in real life. I can see a politician explaining that he wasn't lying, it was just a simple matter of "defactualization". - wordmeister, 2008-06-12: 10:20:00
