Word – Fallacious
Fallacious – Word of the Day
[adjective]: Based on a wrong or incorrect idea.
The origin of this word goes back to the late 15th century. The derivative is taken from different languages. To begin with, the journey started from a Latin verb ‘Fallere’, meaning to deceive. Later, it passed through a tangle of French and Latin forms to eventually get coined as it is used today. The Latin word ‘Fallacia’ was converted into another Latin word ‘Fallaciosus.’ Later on, the latter word was used to coin ‘Fallacieux’, which is an Old French word. Out of all this comes ‘Fallacy’ an English word that is further used to term ‘Fallacious.’ Some of the other progenies of the word ‘Fallere’ in English are fault, false, and fail.
