#WordOfTheDay – This is what confabulate means

Hey Sparkle Writers! How about adding another word to our vocabulary today? 

Today’s word is Confabulate

It means two things; Tto converse informally or to chat with someone. 

For instance;

My teacher and I confabulate often. 

She could be heard on the telephone confabulating with someone.
 
Yeah we know, all that big grammar just to say chat 😊

Confabulate could also mean to fabricate imaginary experiences as compensation for loss of memory.

Look at this example;

She has lapses in attention and concentration—she may be confabulating a little.

That’s it for today. Remember that every Wednesday on The Sparkle Writer’s Hub we have a new word here. See you next week.
