    What's that word for ...

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by The Mad Regent, Jan 16, 2016.

    What's that word for something that looks innocent but really hides something dangerous or harmful?

    I know there is one, but can't think of it. God, my memory has gone so shit over the last two years.

    BTW, don't feel bad. :) I spent months completely unable to access the words intuitive and unintuitive when I needed them. My train of thought would come to the word and hit a wall. :confuzled:

    My vocab is probably my Achilles heel when it comes to writing, but it's even worse now that my memory is folding. But it's nice to know I'm not the only one who sometimes struggles to think of words. :)

    Deceitful is a good one to.

    I just ran deceptive through the Thesaurus.
