I like the dictionary...

allegro adj, adv : brisk, sprightly, cheerful, musical direction fast; faster than allegretto but not so fast as presto

alliaceous adj : 1. of a group of strong-smelling bulb plants of the lily family, including onion, garlic etc. 2. having the smell or taste of onions or garlic

allantois n. a type of fountain pen, first made in the 17th century, using a section of goat's intestine as a receptacle for ink

allometry n. the study and measurement of the relative growth of a part of an organism in comparison with the whole

And did you know that allegorization is an actual word? It's in the dictionary...

Beware of allegorization. Your reality may one day be reduced to symbolism then you will disappear.

Question: which of the words listed above has a false meaning?

mompoet - just playing a little reverse balderdash
