The first word is STIVER.
Meaning: The smallest amount.
Sentence: I doubt he has a stiver left.
The second word is DEIPINOSOPHIST.
Meaning: A person skilled in table talk.
My father is a deipnosophist, he can get even the shyest dinner guests to take part in a debate.
Third and final word is MALINGER.
Meaning: To pretend illness, especially to get out of responsibilities, work, school, etc.
We hope you've all enjoyed this What's the Word!
