Word of the Week... PARALIPSIS.

 Nothing wrong with expanding your vocabulary and knowledge of words.  Who knows when you may encounter or need to use them.  .  Here’s the word of this week:
Paralipsis: Noun.
1.        A rhetorical device in which an idea is emphasized by the pretense that it is too obvious to discuss; as in "not to mention other faults".  [I.e. your idea has several drawbacks, not to mention the high costs with it]  
Try using it in a sentence.
