(pronounced sank-tuh-MO-nee-ess)

There’s something about the sound of this adjective that fits its definition perfectly: hypocritically pious or devout. In layman’s terms: Holier Than Thou.

Example: Sophie promised herself that when Fritz uttered his next sanctimonious statement, she was calling him out on it, even if it happened in front of their project team leader.
