Transcript of vocab 15 b

Crass coarse or tasteless; rude Hypercritical overcritical; too severe in judgement Fallacy a mistaken notion; a misconception Complacent self satisfied; smug Befuddle to confuse or perplex “It can be absurd, cantankerous, self-destructive and pompous, but it is never crass”

Meg Ryan

-Henry David Thoreau
