The Closing Word: Spurious

The Closing Word: SpuriousThis week we continue our vocabulary-building series, “The Closing Word.” Each week we provide a new word to help build your vocabulary and show you an example of how to use it.

This week’s closing word:


Pronounced: (spYOO-ree-us)

1. plausible but false
2. intended to deceive
3. born out of wedlock

From “Anytime you see the word spurious, you’re dealing with things that can’t be trusted or accepted at face value. A spurious claim is one that’s not backed up by the facts. A spurious argument relies on faulty reasoning — and maybe some lies.”

“Beware the unscrupulous agent who makes spurious claims about a home’s value in order to try and convince sellers to list with them.”
