Mendacity: Mendacity means dishonest, lying, untruthful, deceitful, and so on. It shares its etymology with amend. The initial a in amend is similar to amoral, asocial, apolitical, etc. Thus, amend is to remove a mendacity or fault.
But interlaced with his success is a tale of mendacity, deceit, coercion, and theft.
