English → English (gcide) Definition: Plausible Plausible \Plau"si*ble\, a. [L. plausibilis praiseworthy, from plaudere, plausum, to applaud, clap the hands, strike, beat.] 1. Worthy of being applauded; praiseworthy; commendable; ready. [Obs.] --Bp. Hacket. [1913 Webster] 2. Obtaining approbation; specifically pleasing; apparently right; specious; as, a plausible pretext; plausible manners; a plausible delusion. “Plausible and popular arguments.” --Clarendon. [1913 Webster] 3. Using specious arguments or discourse; as, a plausible speaker. [1913 Webster] [1913 Webster] Syn: Plausible, Specious. Usage: Plausible denotes that which seems reasonable, yet leaves distrust in the judgment. Specious describes that which presents a fair appearance to the view and yet covers something false. Specious refers more definitely to the act or purpose of false representation; plausible has more reference to the effect on the beholder or hearer. An argument may by specious when it is not plausible because its sophistry is so easily discovered. [1913 Webster]
