GRE Vocab Wednesday - The Hardest Magoosh Words. In this GRE Vocab Wednesday video, Chris Lele from Magoosh goes over the hardest vocabulary words that are in the Magoosh GRE Vocabulary Flashcards. We have a special algorithm that tells us how many people know each word in the flashcards, and these are four words that very few people know! So consider this edition of Vocab Wednesday a special challenge :)
The first word that Chris goes over is "venality," which means openness to bribery and corruption. FIFA, the organization that oversees the soccer World Cup, was recently accused of venality. In some cases, referees were being bribed to help certain teams. The next word is "prevaricate." This is a big word, but its meaning is not that complicated! It simply means to lie, to be misleading, and to not tell the truth. Then we have "parochial," which means narrow minded, or very limited in scope or outlook. Finally, we have "calumny." This is one of the hardest GRE vocab words! It refers to a malicious, untrue statement that's designed to injure somebody's reputation.
