Eccedentesiast

Definition: One who fakes a smile

pronunciation: ex-en-dent-TEE-shee-ist

Origin

This term was coined by Florence King in one of his exchange of letters with George Will.

Why this word?

I encountered this word a long, long time ago while I was reading this romantic novel. I can’t even remember the title, but somehow I can recall that the main character was at one point an eccedentesiast especially after her break-up with her fiancé. So yeah, I use this word sparingly.

How to use eccedentesiast in a sentence:

She couldn’t cry enough to relieve her from the pains of losing her child. Surprisingly, after just a few days, she was already beaming to everyone at work although some would actually say that she was just being an eccedentesiast about the matter.
