M is For Machiavellian


Week 3 of the A To Z Challenge has arrived. And with comes our next letter - M.

So the first word that I came to that I didn't know and began with M was:

Machiavellian (mak-ee-a-vel-yan) adj cleverly deceitful and unscrupulous [after Machiavelli, political philosopher] Machiavellianism n

Now I think I've heard this word before, but I'm pretty sure that I've never known what it meant.

See you tomorrow

Great choice for today's word. I love this word, takes me back to older times.

Another word I would have thought you would have heard a lot. Read too. I usually look up any words I come across which I don't know.
