Word of the Week

Questusation (n.) an accusation wrapped inside a question. A loaded question.

I learned questussation this morning from a man who called into the Dan & Amy radio show. It describes when someone asks you a leading question that actually accuses you.

Examples:

Do you still beat your wife?

Since your plan is such a failure, what do you think was the main reason it was horrible?

What do you think? I welcome your comments.
