Verisimilitude

Verisimilitude

<ver-rah-sah-mil-lit-tood>

plausibility; realism; authenticity;

something appearing to be real.

My dream was a colorful verisimilitude. I could smell the flowers.

Memory trick:
verisimilitude reminds of verify

At work:
The demonstration was a perfect verisimilitude. The client imagined the real thing and closed the deal.
