  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Noun Phrase 133. The noun phrase today is

  • either barefaced lie or bold-faced lie. They basically have the same exact

  • meaning. So that's why we're going to cover both today. Okay. So let's take a look at

  • the note here. A barefaced lie or bold-faced lie is a very obvious lie

  • that is told with a lot of confidence or at least the person who's telling it

  • seems to be very confident. Like oh what are you talking about ? I'm not lying. No. No

  • way and they tell it very directly. Usually the person who is telling the

  • lie has good acting talent. You know, so that they're acting like they're very

  • confident. No. No way. But the person who accuses

  • someone of being a bare-faced liar or bold-faced liar can see through the lie

  • and it's very obvious. They know it's a lie. Basically he is accusing the

  • barefaced liar of telling a planned or deliberate lie. You know, on purpose. Okay.

  • Let's continue. The word bare-faced sometimes is also found with a hyphen.

  • So you can see bear - faced. Okay. Then you see the same with bold too. So you may

  • find it both ways with and without a hyphen too. The word bare face dates back to the 16th

  • century and meant ... originally it just meant clean-shaven, without a beard or a mask

  • or anything covering the face. Over time it evolved to mean someone that was open

  • and not hiding anything. Thus barefaced ... a barefaced lie evolved

  • into someone pretending to be open and honest, but was clearly a liar. Okay. Let's

  • continue. Around the mid-1900s bold-faced came into existence. So first it was just

  • barefaced then boldfaced came around the 1900s. Many think it may have formed

  • simply to add emphasis. Because it sounds a little bit

  • stronger than barefaced. The idea is to show how bold or daring

  • one is to tell such a lie. You know , where you know, they're acting like they're

  • perfectly you know, honest and everything but you know, maybe it's too easy to see

  • through it. Okay. Good. There is even a third term, bald-faced liar. So you could

  • have a barefaced liar, a bold-faced liar, and bald-faced liar. Okay. Let's continue.

  • Yeah. So bald-faced that is a variant of the first two. But it's less common. You

  • don't see it quite as much. So you probably see barefaced probably most

  • common. Then sometimes bold-faced but there is also bald-faced. Okay. And here,

  • we just we have got four examples to cover these. Let's look at example number one.

  • He could be a good actor when he wants to be. He has a talent for telling

  • barefaced lies. You could say that or number two. Don't believe a word of it.

  • That is a bold-faced lie. Yeah. So maybe somebody knows for sure. Absolutely, they,...

  • You know,maybe they have certain knowledge they know 100% that that

  • person is lying. Okay. And number three here. I don't care how sincere Susan

  • pretends to be. That is a bold-faced lie or again barefaced lie. And number four

  • here. Many politicians try to perfect their skill of telling barefaced lies or

  • boldface lines. Yeah. Okay. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it was clear. I hope hope was

  • informative. Thank you for your time. Bye- bye.
