Definition
pretended — usually pretending to feel something
  • Had she affections and warm youthful blood, She'd be as swift in motion as a ball; My words would bandy her to my sweet love, And his to me: But old folks, many feign as they were dead; Unwieldy, slow, heavy and pale as lead.
    2.5 — Act 2 Scene 5 — Capulet's Garden (19% in)
