Oxford Dictionary Fun (with the SJs)

A member of the Society of Jesus pointed out to me that I used "jesuitical" incorrectly tonight to refer to something related to the Jesuits.  Turns out he was (mostly) right:

Jesuitical(Jes·u·it·i·cal)

Syllabification:
Pronunciation:/ˌjeZHo͞oˈitikəl, ˌjez(y)o͞o-/

adjective

  • of or concerning the Jesuits.
  • dissembling or equivocating, in the manner associated with Jesuits.
