Words of the Day XVIII

Lies and Slander!!

Today, I woke up, after sleeping for an hour. Cool.



Japanese Word of the Day is:

                                          Usou

English Word of the Day is:  Beguile


Usou means lie, or a falsehood. It is used both how we use it in sentences. The Japanese use it as a colloquialism in the same way we use 'no way!' which is kind of cool.


Beguile means to deceive or delude. Specifically, through being suave, personal charm or some other form of interpersonal misdirection. Sneaky!


Usou in a sentence: 
本当は嘘がないと思います。

I think truth has no lies.
  



Well, that's about it for me today. Tell me in the comment section if you bleep bloop bloop!
