Word of the Day – Persiflage

By August 25, 2015Word of the Day

Persiflage (noun)

pur-sif-laj

Light but slightly contemptuous mockery, banter.

I love this word, a very posh sounding word for banter. From the French persifler, to banter.

Example sentences

“He was often accused of being mean, but really he was just full of persiflage.”

“He wasn’t known to wrap things in persiflage, thinking it a little cruel. “
