Monday word of the week – Perfidious

This week’s Monday word of the week is Perfidious.

From vocabulary.com:

If someone accuses you of being perfidious, you should probably be offended — it means underhanded, treacherous, deceitful — even evil.

From freedictionary.com:

perfidious [pəˈfɪdɪəs]

adj   guilty, treacherous, or faithless; deceitful

From scrabblefinder.com:

Perfidious is worth 16 points in Scrabble, and 18 points in Words with Friends

There are 10 letters in perfidious: D E F I I O P R S U

Perfidious is not a rare word. You can see it in books or magazines occasionally. It sounds like one of those words from an old-fashioned crime novel. I think it is a fun word to use now and then.  Well, maybe fun isn’t the right word, but I still like it.
