Verb[edit]

fallō (present infinitive fallere, perfect active fefellī, supine falsum); third conjugation

  1. I deceive, trick, cheat, disappoint.
  2. I mistake, am mistaken, deceive myself.
    • 426 CE, Augustine of Hippo, De civitate Dei contra paganos, 11.26:
      Si enim fallor, sum. Nam qui non est, utique nec falli potest; ac per hoc sum, si fallor. Quia ergo sum si fallor, quo modo esse me fallor, quando certum est me esse, si fallor? Quia igitur essem qui fallerer, etiamsi fallerer, procul dubio in eo quod me novi esse, non fallor.
      Well, if I am mistaken, I exist. For a man who does not exist can surely not be mistaken either, and if I am mistaken, therefore I exist. So, since I am if I am mistaken, how can I be mistaken in believing that I am when it is certain that if I am mistaken I am. Therefore, from the fact that, if I were indeed mistaken, I should have to exist to be mistaken, it follows that I am undoubtedly not mistaken in knowing that I am. [tr. David S. Wiesen]
  3. I escape the notice of, am unseen.
  4. I appease, beguile.
  5. I swear falsely, perjure.
