One Word Substitution Unique & The Most Helpful. OWS Part 20

In the realm of language proficiency assessments, mastering one word substitution (OWS) is pivotal, especially when preparing for exams such as the SSC, including the prestigious SSC CGL. From the foundational stages, like Class 3, students begin encountering these exercises, where a single word stands in for more complex concepts. As learners progress, they compile a growing list of one word substitutions to enhance their command over English. Examples of these one word substitutes abound, with terms like ‘cynosure’ highlighting the focal point and ‘ephemeral’ encapsulating fleeting moments. These exercises are not only integral for exams but also for broader linguistic proficiency in everyday English one word substitution scenarios. Embracing these substitutes provides an easy yet effective way to navigate the intricacies of language, ensuring a solid foundation for success in language assessments.

1901 STAPLE principal raw material or commodity grown in a locality The only sound is the rhythmic thunk, thunk, thunk as I staple math worksheets, three pages for twenty-one students. He was so tired, his brain felt like someone had gone in and stapled it to his skull in a dozen places.
1902 SUBMERGE put under the surface of water The ruins continued under her feet Out here they were almost completely submerged, only a few shapeless masses rising through the grasp of vegetation. Or consider the Moche, leaders of a military state that overran much of the northern coast, submerging the identities of its victims in its own.
1903 INTERSPERSE scatter things among others or place here and there Because the city was crisscrossed by water, clumps of buildings were interspersed with overgrown jungle, all muddled together with occasional sprints of broad avenues. Sometimes at night, she could hear the cries of the quail doves and solitaires interspersed with the songs from the aviary.
1904 ORDEAL severe test of character or endurance Three quarters of his body had been terribly burned during the ordeal, his face receiving some of the severest damage. Her stomach churned as she listened to his ordeal.
1905 MAXIM short saying expressing a general truth There’s an age-old maxim in the black community: You’ve got to be twice as good to get half as far. One reason things were changing so much owed to a familiar technology maxim called Moore’s law.
1906 SHATTER smash to pieces General Teófilo Vargas came forward with his intentions: in a few hours he shattered the coalition of better-qualified commanders and took charge of the main command. All the peace I felt in Kamal’s house is suddenly shattered.
1907 ANATHEMA something that is detested And the idea of remaining in a poor agrarian setting, in any capacity, was anathema to a child with such prodigious talents and cocky self-assurance. But I found that such a meeting was anathema to ANC leaders in Natal.
1908 NARCOSIS state of unconscious Well, The Shape Of Water is a film which has beguiled everyone who has seen it: and what it certainly has to offer is pure artistry and pure narcosis. Using a helium-oxygen mixture avoids the disoriented mental state known as nitrogen narcosis, the so-called rapture of the deep.
1909 COHERENT sticking together He mixed in various plot lines from Austrian, Norwegian and German sagas, and set about moulding them into a coherent dramatic whole. Why do so many people”capable of delivering whole paragraphs of coherent argument in one-on-one conversation”falter when asked to speak in public?
1910 DIDACTIC story told to illustrate a moral or spiritual truth Then he continued with his discussion in the same didactic tone as before. Always didactic, he went into a learned exposition of the diabolical properties of cinnabar, but Úrsula paid no attention to him, although she took the children off to pray.
1911 FLUKE stroke of good luck The scientist on board tells us that the fluke, or tail, of a whale is like a person’s fingerprint. Just to see that the previous thirty-nine chapters weren’t some fluke.
1912 HAGIOLOGY study of literature dealing with lives of saints He earned that moment, and all the Louisiana hagiology that will follow. The children of murdered republicans would be brainwashed with mariology and hagiology.
1913 ORNATE style in which a writer makes a display of his knowledge Behind my half-head, in the center of the picture, in the empty sky, a pier glass is hanging, convex and encircled by an ornate frame. An absence so decorative, so ornate, it was difficult for her to understand how she had ever endured, without falling dead or being consumed, his magnificent presence.
1914 SACCHARIN substance used in place of sugar The page was crowded with thousands of comments and videos of Nicole, her pageant appearances, student council speeches, tennis matches, mash-up tributes cut to saccharin music. Since sugar and meat were both in short supply, and since it was rumored that infants had died from saccharin mixed into formulas as a sugar substitute, these charges were widely believed.
1915 CONNOTE suggest in addition to the fundamental meaning No, it was meant to determine if you were right brained or left brained, usually connoted by handedness. There was a screen, connoting dying, around Johnny’s bed.
1916 INSINUATE suggest indirectly A scintilla of doubt had begun to insinuate itself. His precise, insinuating delivery suggested horrors that Turner could not immediately grasp.
1917 VACUOUS suggesting absence of thought or intellect Katie refused to dance with the feller provided for her, a vacuous vulgar boy given to remarks like: “I thought you musta fallen in,” when Katie returned from a trip to the ladies’ room. For now she had to figure a way to separate this vacuous girl from her mirrored sunglasses.
1918 CULT system of religious worship Even before the deuton affair, some Rad Lab researchers were questioning whether the cult of the machine had not overwhelmed the drive for basic science. I was there to glean one of the cult’s congregants”a man who had not yet turned his first corner.
1919 VOLATILE that easily changes into gas or vapour It was the end of August, all volatile heat and the occasional breeze. Some distant, rational part of my mind thought: of course, to make it volatile.
1920 PALLIATIVE that which can lessen the severity of (pain , disease) She drew close to Úrsula, trusting that she would know of some palliative for her attacks. One palliative of winter on Winter is that the days stay light.
1921 UNIMPEACHABLE that which cannot be doubted or questioned Morrison raised his eyebrows to indicate the unimpeachable logic of this statement. A gifted raconteur and an indefatigable drinker, Causey was a pilot of unimpeachable courage.
1922 HERBIVORE that which eats grass It has been found that animals, both wild herbivores and livestock, are sometimes strangely attracted to a plant that has been sprayed, even though it is not one of their natural foods. When Joel lets his chickens loose in a pasture, he is using their natural instinct to clean up after herbivores.
1923 ADDENDUM thing to be added at the end of a book etc. Publishing an addendum to his initial paper, he conceded that the true relativistic limit might be double what he originally proposed. “And now,” Miss Spink said, “Miriam and I proudly present a new and exciting addendum to our theatrical exposition. Do I see a volunteer?”
1924 PRAGMATISM theory of utility Seventeen years of Scholar pragmatism protest the existence of creatures that are supposed to be nothing but legend. It’s also easy to see why we should treasure economy, pragmatism and longevity in a deepening environmental crisis.
1925 CONFEDERACY union of states, parties, or persons Autonomous tribal towns made decisions about trade and relations with other groups, but in some political and social matters, the towns worked together as a confederacy to make decisions that affected all of their members. In this confederacy, the clan mothers also played a key role in governance.
1926 DESECRATE use in an unworthy or wicked way Papa was anxious to please Grandpa, but not anxious enough to desecrate the Sabbath by singing songs like “Bird in a Gilded Cage” or “Waltz Me Around Again, Willie.” He pointed to the church where the priest desecrated the altar by pouring the blood of dead pigeons into the holy chalice.
1927 PECULATION use of public money for one’s own benefit But, despite some abstruse Jamesianisms like “instauration,” “peculation,” “invigilator,” and ” my favorite ” an “inspissatedly expressed and barely scrutable conjecture,” he tempers his stylistic mimicry to appeal to modern tastes, with shorter paragraphs and heightened urgency. “He might pervert his administration into a scheme of peculation or oppression,” he said, according to the minutes.
1928 OUTLET way out for water or stream While crossing a lake on a ferry boat, they found an outlet for their rage. The people must have an outlet for their anger and frustration, and a mass action campaign was the best way to channel those emotions.
1929 PROLETARIAT whole body of wage earners And the Ministry had not only to supply the multifarious needs of the Party, but also to repeat the whole operation at a lower level for the benefit of the proletariat. All of them are officials of the church….Now go there and preach a red hot sermon about the proletariat.
1930 HAVOC wide spread violence There’s also a winged pterodactyl that appears once in a while to wreak havoc. “We really wreak havoc on the heavens, don’t we?”
1931 ACRONYM word formed from initial letters of a name I had never before heard that Blood was an acronym. In the precious final minutes he wrote out his address for her, a bleak sequence of acronyms and numbers.
1932 ANAGRAM word made by changing the order of the letters in another word Those who were distracted by doing anagrams”those who were forced to make an unconscious, spontaneous gut decision”chose the best car 60 percent of the time. “I’m good with codes and stuff. And I’m good at, like, linguistic tricks like anagramming. That’s my favorite thing, really. I can anagram anything.”
1933 BROCADE woven fabric richly ornamented with designs Satins and foils and stiff brocades, encrusted with jewels and trimmed in furs with the heads still on, glassy eyes, bared fangs and all. The master and his sons laughed as he wiped his face, but the twenty dollars went to new boots and a brocade coat like he’d seen some worthies wear in D.C.
1934 STATUTE written law passed by the law making body In 1945, the Supreme Court upheld a Texas statute that limited the number of black jurors to exactly one per case. I knew, from television, that there was no statute of limitations on murder.
1935 TRANSIENT of a very short duration of period He wore a rain hat and dark glasses and what appeared to be several jackets layered on top of one another, which made him look both fat and vaguely transient. Under certain circumstances, the membrane surrounding blepharisma disintegrates and comes independently loose, like a cast-off shell, leaving the creature a transient albino.
1936 INSCRUTABLE not clearly expressed or understand Neither of them had ever looked more inscrutable. It rolled over in bed when he got home before sunrise: a green-eyed monster lying next to his young, inscrutable wife, but then Zizmo would blink and the monster would disappear.
1937 LAGOON salt water lake separated from the sea by sand banks “Our hour on the lagoon last evening proved the crown of a charming day,” she wrote. Near to Ralph’s elbow a palm sapling leaned out over the lagoon.
1938 SYCOPHANT person who caters to the rich Around him was a raucous entourage of assistants, sycophants, distant relatives and assorted hangers-on. Shusgis talked and talked to me and to the many employees, aides, and sycophants who sat down at his table nightly; I had never known him so longwinded, so relentlessly jovial.
1939 AESTHETIC one who doubts the soundness of inferences We must also bear in mind that art appreciation is more than enjoyment of aesthetics. It had enough Goth influences to fit with Slash’s aesthetic, but it still felt classic and timeless.
1940 DENIGRATION an expression of mild disapproval But if I’d been letting my dreams get away from me and dreamed about Javi and me, who’s to say other people’s thoughts didn’t get away from them”but not with affection, with a denigration. If denigration is deemed necessary, it should perhaps be handed out to the timid officials of public collections, particularly, of course, the Tate Gallery which emerges with little credit in the British acknowledgement of Picasso.
1941 CERAMICS art of poetry This I learned from a ceramics class I once took. The plateau has never been carefully excavated, but observations by geographers Woods and Joseph McCann of the New School in New York City indicate that it is thick with ceramics.
1942 SPECTATORS at a match One afternoon I followed a throng of spectators to a tent on a patch of green next to centre court. The games were played in a small, high-ceilinged room at the end of the hallway, probably to limit the number of spectators, which had grown to several dozen while Bobby was playing the younger men.
1943 CROWD in the street I nodded, bringing my attention back to the crowd. Christina, standing on the edge of the crowd, looks over her shoulder and spots me.
1944 MOB in a riot R. J. Schrandt, a Deputy, testified that after a small group of men had been driven back, Mrs. Sellins organized a mob and led the charge against the line of deputies. When the mob arrived at the property several out-of-work men and tsotsis who were our leaders conferred on what to do with the dogs in order to break into the stores.
1945 VIEWERS watching a tv programme “The TV people tell me there may be as many as fifty million viewers watching at home when you take your shot,” he said. As the bloodied marchers of Selma were being carried off to the hospital, the nation’s three major television networks interrupted their scheduled programs and stunned viewers with graphic footage of the day’s violence.
1946 MOURNERS attending a funeral After the priest sprinkled holy water over Anna’s casket, Mollie guided her family and the other mourners to a cemetery in Gray Horse, a quiet, isolated spot overlooking the endless prairie. The mourners followed in single file to keep witches from following them.
1947 LISTENERS listening to a broadcast programme “And what would you say, Royal, to those listeners who reply that in these dangerous times, it should be “Wizards first’?” asked Lee. To many listeners, the Mercury’s Halloween program had been far too real.
1948 PHILOGYNIST a lover of womankind The facts are true, even if the protagonists are fictions. I wrapped my right hand around the joystick and began to play, guiding my pizza-shaped protagonist through one maze after another.
1949 GOURMAND a lover of food As Brannon extinguished the match, Odum began eating his cigar, taking large bites and swallowing the tobacco with the relish of a gourmand. That we would be so easy to kill was the only reason we weren’t dead already; like a gourmand about to enjoy a fine meal, there was no reason to rush things.
1950 PACIFIST a person who believes in the total abolition of war “And I didn’t know you were a pacifist.” Okay, that was the precise moment the Wild Boy took complete charge of my sensibilities as the pacifist was sleeping off a binge.
1951 SUPPLICANT one who supplicates or entreats earnestly In exchange, supplicants pledged their votes, helping the Democratic aldermen who filled the city council to fend off their Republican opponents. The Rule calls the nuns to test the supplicant’s spirit, to see if it comes from God.
1952 PROFESSIONAL one who plays for money Their parents were professionals; these children went to private schools. Or maybe the moment was an interaction between a professional and a subprofessional, an engineer and a girl.
1953 ICONOCLAST one who breaks images and idols But Wagner wasn’t the only composer who was guilty of creating unnecessary clutter in the eyes of an iconoclast like Satie. This is not a case of a young iconoclast trying to shock the unshockable for sensation’s sake.
1954 SOMNILOQUENT one who talks in sleep How often the pen becomes the tongue of a systematic dream,”a somniloquist!  
1955 CONFIDANT one who enjoys another person’s confidence Scaramouche turned out to be not only a good coach but a confidant and a surrogate father. There was a man named Benjamin Banneker who composed almanacs”almanacs! she devoured them all”and served as a confidant to Thomas Jefferson, who composed the Declaration.
1956 PIRATE one who sails around stopping and robbing ships at sea Nick Farthing was in his bed, asleep and dreaming of pirates on the sunny blue sea, when it all went wrong. In nature it is kept in check by various predators such as ladybugs, a gall midge, predaceous mites and several pirate bugs, all of them extremely sensitive to insecticides.
1957 TEETOTALLER one who abstains from alcoholic drink I shouldn’t, but lunch with my mother would test the willpower of a lifelong teetotaller. The owner was a young-old man with a gray face, I suspect a teetotaller.
1958 EXPATRIATE to send out of one’s native country The estate agent had told her that the landlord preferred expatriate renters. A “repatriate” was someone returning to his native country, while an “expatriate” was someone withdrawing himself from his native country.
1959 SPOKESMAN one who speaks for others A police spokesman said that it was too early to comment at this stage in their investigations, but that significant leads are being followed. “Good. Now to your assignment: Tomorrow you are to become chief spokesman of the Harlem District . . .” “What!”
1960 EXTRAVAGANT one who wastes money for luxury And so Naomi gave herself permission to be extravagant with the cloth. My mom is meticulous and extravagant in her record keeping.
1961 INSOLVENT one who is unable to pay his debt On Friday evening, October 14, 1983, at 6: 13 P.M., the First National Bank was declared insolvent by the Comptroller of the Currency. The Board of Saab Automobile subsequently decided that the company without further funding will be insolvent and that filing bankruptcy is in the best interests of its creditors.”
1962 OPPORTUNIST a person who takes advantage of every change for success, sometimes to other people’s disadvantage It’s fine to cure the leukemia sufferers but much more satisfying to imagine the parade of opportunists confounded by my refusal to cooperate. Coherence Relation Elaboration Example Herons have one thing in their favor: they are total opportunists.
1963 COQUETTE a girl or woman who flirts, that is, tries to attract people and make advances in love simply to satisfy her vanity She coquetted and played her owners against one another. Madame coquetted with him in the most captivating and naive manner, with eyes, gestures, and a profusion of compliments, till the Colonel’s old head felt thirty years younger on his padded shoulders.
1964 CONJUROR a person who does clever tricks which appear magical It’s more than spinning plates, or a conjuror with his interlocking metal hoops. You greeted me with your conjuror’s handshake / And told a long.
1965 EXPLORER a person who travels into or through a country for the purpose of learning about it “From Admiral Drake, the South Pole explorer. He sent him to me for a present.” Why hadn’t the explorers known by looking at the sky that the world was round?
1966 FOSTER-CHILD a child brought up by persons who are not its parents They founded it to benefit the Robitailles’ foster-child charity ” and because Bernard didn’t want to go 10 days at the festival without playing hockey. Keats wrote of his Grecian urn: “Thou foster-child of Silence and slow Time”.
1967 INFECTIOUS a disease caused by bacteria and passed from one person to another Both involved quarantines”the practice of isolating someone with a highly infectious disease from the healthy population. Making her way through the squalor, Kira remembered Matt’s infectious chortle.
1968 NARCOTIC a medicine that induces sleep But the middle-Hariem narcotics force found so many ways to harass me that I had to change my area. Sleeping meds and narcotics didn’t do for me what they did for normal people.
1969 DIALOGUE a talk between two people If you can create the right framework, all of a sudden, engaging in the kind of fluid, effortless, spur-of-the-moment dialogue that makes for good improv theater becomes a lot easier. A continuous dialogue is going on between the two hemispheres, channeled through an immense bundle of nerves, the corpus callosum, the bridge between creativity and analysis, both of which are necessary to understand the world.
1970 PROLOGUE an introduction to a long poem, a play, etc “Say, what’re you doing today, anyhow? All dressed up and mooning around like the prologue to a suttee. Did you go to Psychology this morning?” I watched her fall convincingly into poverty and despair, once abandoned by the wicked count”who was the prologue speaker in his black cloak.
1971 AMPHIBIANS animals which live both on land and in water In the fourth grade he started a herpetology club, for anyone interested in toads, frogs, snakes, and various other amphibians and reptiles. She had planned a second Surinam book with illustrations of other amphibians and reptiles, but could not manage it financially.
1972 EXPORT article sold by one country to another “This is why we’re so excited about this contest, Adam Costello. Some of the beautiful work of the human young will be exported to the stars.” Because of those laws, not much foreign beer gets exported to Germany, and because of inefficiency and high prices much less of that wonderful German beer than you would otherwise expect gets sold abroad.
1973 IMPORT article bought by one country from another But the ones that had made the most difference to me were the words I had heard before and never fully understood their import”words such as honesty and trust, loyalty and friendship. Because their stove and toaster and pressure cooker and imported spices were left behind in Nsukka, their meals were simpler too, and Ugwu had more time to play with her.
1974 INEXTINGUISHABLE that which cannot be extinguished In all sports, they lacked his inextinguishable fierceness, his hunger for games. An inextinguishable elation gripped the room and the voices of the young aviators were fleshed with bravado.
1975 UNINTELLIGIBLE incapable of being understood “I exaggerate, perhaps. The American, Hardman, and the German maid”yes, they have added something to our knowledge. That is to say, they have made the whole business more unintelligible than it was.” He shook his head and muttered something unintelligible.
1976 ELIGIBLE fit to be chosen I told Mom that if she left Dad, she’d be eligible for government aid, which she couldn’t get now because she had an able-bodied husband. Any adult male citizen, that is, was eligible for the 6,000-strong jury pool.
1977 SEMIANNUAL that which happens every half year The first Lucky Fashion and Beauty Blog Conference, which Ms. Holley hopes will be a semiannual summit for bloggers looking to learn from Lucky, will occur in New York next month. “We’ve got some shows that are doing well,” Reilly said to reporters gathered here for the semiannual Television Critics Association press tour.
1978 LIBERTINE a man who leads an immoral life On their first night together she broke out in a rash just as the libertine was opening her bedroom door. She was aware of his libertine relationships with the women in the factory, but had ceased to be hurt by them.
1979 LOGIC the science of reasoning Not wilderness where there was system, or the logic of lions, trees, toads, and birds, but wild wilderness where there was none. Summers had a logic all their own and they always brought something out in me.
1980 VOLUNTARY of one’s own free will We can use our voluntary muscular system to try to suppress those involuntary responses. The first line in that code says, “The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential.”
1981 IMPOSTOR one who deceives by pretending to be someone else “Strange hearing that word from a boy who left his friend to die,” the impostor snarled. Her kierie was raised, and she looked seconds away from dashing down the slope to beat some honesty into the impostor below.
1982 COLLEAGUES persons who work in the same department of an office She and her colleagues had isolated the strain and shown that it was something new. Ernest spent the hours pacing by the radio, silent and withdrawn among friends and colleagues from the lab.
1983 PHILANDERER a person who has many love affairs without intending to marry “How a philanderer like you could sit in judgment on me, I’ll never understand!” One of the individuals he professed to admire greatly over the last two years of his life was a heavy drinker and incorrigible philanderer who regularly beat up his girlfriends.
1984 SAMARITAN a person who helps a helpless person or stranger It was Mudd’s hope that George would act as a go-between, alerting the police to the fact that his Good Samaritan cousin might just have “accidentally” aided the men who killed Lincoln. “Oh, look,” says my mom, “this is what I was talking about”that’s the good Samaritan.”
1985 CELIBACY the state of abstention from marriage If a woman repeatedly failed to conceive, she was forced to pay a steep “celibacy tax.” The women of the town early discovered his celibacy, and not being able to comprehend his rejection of them, decided that he was supernatural rather than unnatural.
1986 FERTILE land that grows things in abundance We get in and set out on our familiar, unfamiliar street and head off into a world where fresh roots are already growing deep in the fertile ruins of what used to be. Frey made the fields fertile and brought forth life from the dead ground.
1987 BARREN land that does not grow anything The Peruvian littoral is an agronomical no-go zone: barren, cloudy, almost devoid of rain, seismically and climatically unstable. Plantation is an outdated term she likes to use to gloss up the farm, while the “orchard” is a barren apple tree.
1988 HAUNTED a house which is visited by ghosts This mission from Dain is the only thing keeping me from being haunted by what happened the day before. After Gatsby’s death the East was haunted for me like that, distorted beyond my eyes’ power of correction.
1989 WARDROBE the place where clothes are kept Rowan wondered if the man had a diamond-studded bathing suit in his wardrobe as well. My dressing-case looked unfamiliar as I dragged it from the back of a wardrobe.
1990 ZOO a place where birds and beasts are kept for public to see I was prepared to spend my life in a cage as the centerpiece of their intergalactic zoo if it meant never returning to Calypso. “I remember one time, we all went to the zoo,” he says.
1991 BINDERY a place where books are bound There, besides tending its orchards, Brother Robert served as the monastery’s choirmaster, ran its book bindery and became its principal scribe. In Oregon’s Willamette Valley, the monks at Our Lady of Guadalupe Trappist Abbey bake fruitcakes, operate a book bindery and run a warehouse that stores and labels wine for area vineyards.
1992 MONUMENT a structure erected in remembrance of a person or event There were twelve thick granite panels on the walls inside the circular monument. “Colder,” she said again in Washington, D.C., despite the cherry-blossom promises, despite the white stone monuments hoarding winter light.
1993 AMBULANCE closed vehicle for carrying sick or wounded people Right about then the ambulance comes, I never even heard the siren, and Freak is trying to talk in this croaky voice as they put him on the stretcher. Mr. Bykovski’s body was in that ambulance, and my prayer had been for myself.
1994 AIR-COVER force of aircraft used to protect a military or naval operation There was going to be air cover”dive- bombers and Hellcats on strafing runs, and B-24s from out of the Ellice Islands, right up to the point of attack. Our planes can’t give air cover ’cause of the mist, snow, hail, gales.
1995 AMANUENSIS person who writes from dictation from somebody “The sextet of Robert Frobisher. He was an amanuensis for my father, when my father was too old, too blind, too weak to hold a pen.” So Corinthians was almost on her way to becoming an amanuensis after all.
1996 CACOGRAPHER one who is bad in spellings Most lovely is the youthful hand of his eldest daughter: the cacography of her later years is, alas! something horrible. Some of Artemus Ward’s effects were produced by cacography or bad spelling, but there was genius in the wildly erratic way in which he handled even this rather low order of humor.
1997 CONTEMPORARIES persons living at the same time To appreciate the full impact of this on Tycho and his contemporaries, you have to remember that at that time stars were regarded as fixed, eternal and unchanging lights attached to a crystal sphere. Bruckner aside, most of Wagner’s contemporaries, while quick to assert his musical brilliance, were as at sea with the whole Wagner-and-the-future-of-all-art project as they were with the cultural agendas of his dramas.
1998 CYNOSURE one who is a centre of attraction They were white people all, with faces turned to the cynosure of race. Agostino adores his mamma and is proud to be in the company of this beautiful woman, the cynosure of all eyes.
1999 EGOTIST one who often talks of his achievements “Nay! fear not, you must be egotist, for it is of you that we think.” “Saying what you believe others want to hear is of course a form of lying,” Knausgaard writes and in doing so seems to revel in depicting himself as a narcissist, coward and single-minded egotist.
2000 HYPOCHONDRIAC a patient with imaginary symptoms and ailments He was reputed to be a hypochondriac and a deeply paranoid, frustrated man. Like most hypochondriacs, he had an oddly soothing bedside manner.
