Give me five



a person who spoils other people's enjoyment

Example: I hope you have not asked Mark to come to the party. He is a spoilsport and we will not have a good time if he is there.



insulting and offensive language

Example: The crowd shouted abuse at the Prime Minister as he got into his car.



a tough transparent plastic that looks just like glass

Example: The table top is perspex. It is much safer than glass because it will not shatter if you drop something onto it.



unbelievable; the opposite of credible

Example: It is incredible that he is saying these things to his boss.



something unreal or imaginary

Example: I think that David Blaine's stunt in the perspex box is a brilliant illusion. I don't think that he was there at all.
