Pronunciation: pri__/vee/paall | Note: (__) = last 2 letters of the word prick. That is how pri is supposed to be pronounced: just like prick, but without the (ck).

Sentence: Melissa Adams was my best friend all through grade school, high school and university. We even got the same job together, yet we are not friends as much. We do not giggle like we use to in school. This is business, and our conversations cannot be disclosed. We are privypals by day, and aquaintances by night.

Etymology: privy (private) + pal (friend)
