Pronounced: sloo, verb/noun

Notes: I didn’t know this word

Yesterday’s word

The word confabulate means

  • to talk informally; chat
  • to hold a discussion; confer
  • to fill in gaps in memory by fabrication
Background / Comments

My guess at the meaning of the word was pretty close to the first two definitions; however, the third meaning was entirely unknown to me. The root word is the Latin fabula (conversation; story), which is the same root as the word “fabulous” and “fable”. This explained the third meeting.

First usage

This word came into English in the early 1600s
