Verisimilitude (noun)
[ver-uh-si-mil-i-tood, -tyood]

This suggestion for Word of the Week comes from Brooke. According to the Macquarie Dictionary, it means: “something having merely the appearance of truth.” So you might say …”Although the musical The Book of Mormon does have some verisimilitude, it does not accurately portray what really happens in the Mormon church.”
