Hey Sparkle Writers!
Our word for today is “cocksure.” It is pronounced as /KOK-shoor/.
It is an adjective used to describe someone who is arrogantly or presumptuously overconfident.
The origin of the word is cock (a euphemism for god) + sure, from Old French seur, from Latin securus (secure). Earliest documented use was in 1520. Yeah its that old.
I thought myself cocksure of the horse which he readily promised me.
I do not like Mr Shawn he seems preety cocksure
