Pronunciation: dee-vee-us-sup-pree-vee-us

Sentence: I came upon Geraldine in the ladies washroom. Running late for the annual Employee Appreciation Luncheon, it was odd to observe the deviousuprevious behavior she exhibited.

Being well known for her survivalist approach to eating, I now knew her secret.
