Mendacious:

1. Lying; untruthful: a mendacious child.
2. False; untrue: a mendacious statement. See Synonyms at dishonest.
[From Latin mendcium, lie, from mendx, mendc-, mendacious.]
I'm glad you enjoyed it. When my students complain they don't understand something I said, I hand them a dictionary. They never miss a chance to complain to me that looking up definitions is too much work.
