Wordistry = word + -istry suffix (modelled on “artistry”) = creative wordplay Note: Both of these playful neologisms were invented for this article. “Thrilldulging” seems to be completely new, but other people have also coined “wordistry” – it’s even the name of an annual neologisms contest.

Shakespeare’s Corner p. 47
Guess the Meaning: C
Something that is correct is true and not a lie. But true has another meaning as well: to be loyal and strong of heart. “He is truthful” means he is honest, he doesn’t lie. “She is true” means she is a loyal and strong-hearted person. Untruthful means lying; untrue means disloyal or unfaithful (including in relationship contexts).
Grammar in a Modern Context: Be true to yourself
