Wondrous Words #410

content/uploads/2014/06/WWW.png” alt=”WWW” width=”191″ height=”164″ />Every week I join Kathy at Bermuda Onion’s Weblog to post about new words we’ve discovered. It’s called Wondrous Words Wednesday.

I found this word in a Politico story about Obama’s post-presidency:

absolutism: “Obama was cautioning against absolutism and self-assurance.”

Absolutism is a noun meaning the acceptance of or belief in absolute principles in political, philosophical, ethical, or theological matters.

This word was heard on national television:

mendaciousness:  “I was skeptical of what he said given his history of mendaciousness.”

Mendacious means not telling the truth.

That’s all for me this week. Don’t forget to visit Kathy for more Wondrous Words Wednesday.

  1. I could kind of figure absolutism out but I guessed mendacious completely wrong. Great words today!

    Two good words.
