English around us

A world of words

Liar

A person who tells lies.

“A lie has no power whatsoever by its mere utterance; its power emerges when someone else agrees to believe the lie.”

That’s how Pamela Meyer starts her TED talk. She thinks we’re facing a pandemic of deception , so she explains “How to spot a liar” to help take back the truth.
