Word of the day November 25

The Word of the Day for November 25 is:

beguile • \bih-GHYLE\ • (verb) 1. to deceive by cunning means; 2. to draw notice or interest by wiles or charm; 3. to cause (as time) to pass pleasantly

A little more information about today’s word:
"Deceive," "mislead," "delude," and "beguile" all mean to lead astray or frustrate, usually by underhandedness. "Deceive" implies imposing a false idea or belief that causes ignorance, bewilderment, or helplessness (as in "they tried to deceive me about the cost"). "Mislead" implies a leading astray that may or may not be intentional (as in "I was misled by the confusing sign"). "Delude" implies deceiving so thoroughly as to obscure the truth (as in "we were deluded into thinking we were safe"). "Beguile" stresses the use of charm and persuasion in deceiving (as in "they were beguiled by false promises").

My sentence (using definition #1):
Austin's ingratiating manner and knowing air beguiled us all, and it was only after he had swindled us and disappeared with our money that we discovered his true nature.

Based on Merriam-Webster's Collegiate® Dictionary, 10th Edition.

Next sentence?

The design of the theater was bewildering, the eccentric architect had placed one beguile diagonally through the middle of the main seating area.

I find it very easy to beguile my students in pre-k without meaning to do so.

An attractive lady is better able to beguile foolish men into funding her lavish whims than any ordinary woman.

Alternatively, an ugly man is better able to beguile a foolish man into losing a bet into giving him the funds to take out the attrative woman to dinner and a movie.
