 Here Is A Very Difficult 
 Vocabulary Test For You 

 But, First A Word Study 

 What kind/type of liar is that person ?? 

He/she is a chronic liar. = He/she never stops lying -- He/she does not lie occasionally or even frequently; just goes around lying all the time !!

He/she is a congenital liar. = His/her lying has had very early beginnings... It is as if he/she was born with that vice... One would not greatly exaggerate if one said he/she has been lying from the very moment of his/her moment of birth !!

He/she is a consummate liar. = No one else can lie as artistically or as convincingly as he/she does...  His/her skill in lying has reached the zenith of perfection...

He/she is an egregious liar. = All his/her lies are vicious -- calculatedly and cold-bloodedly so !! He/she specifically designs his/her lies to hurt and to do harm...

He/she is a glib liar. = Possessing a lively imagination and a ready tongue, he/she fabricates great lies or little fibs alike with great speed, fluency and smoothness... Ironically enough, it is this great ability makes him/her suspect: we may admire the nimble wit behind the quick answers, but we do not fail at the same time to notice that he/she is "always full of pretty answers"...

He/she is an inveterate liar. = Lying is a firmly-fixed and deeply-rooted habit with him/her... It is almost as reflexive it is for him/her as lighting a cigarette after sex...

He/she is an incorrigible liar. = His/her habitual lying accepts no correction... He/she just goes on and on lying despite any embarrassment or punishment he/she may have suffered in the past: There is just no reforming him/her...

He/she is a notorious liar. = He/she has managed to establish for himself/herself so solid and unsavory a reputation as an incorrigible liar that he/she can now fool only an unknowing stranger -- and even that, not for long !!

He/she is a psychopathic liar. = He/she cannot tell the difference between truth and falsehood, cannot distinguish fact from fantasy... He/she, in this particular respect at least, cannot be accepted as entirely sane.

He/she is an unconscionable liar. = He/she is totally unscrupulous, completely without a conscience... He/she never feels the slightest pain of guilt, no matter what harm his/her lies, fibs and fabrications may cause to his/her innocent victims...
