Are you perspicacious?

Perspicacious
Pronounced:
<per-spa-kay-shish>
Acutely insightful and wise.

My use:

I am much too perspicacious to fall for such a story. Instead, tell me the truth.

Literary use:
By Augustine
You are of all men the most perspicacious, and certainly the most learned.


Memory trick:
Perspi
. cacious
Perspi (reminds of) = perspective
cacious (reminds of) = tenacious or hard working
perspective that is tenacious


Listen: Perspicacious
