The first word is STIVER.

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!
