(v) to disguise, to put on a false appearance in order to hide the real face. Origin: L dis-, + sembler, to seem like => 'to seem not like' => 'to seem different' "Why do we dissemble our feelings? Why do any of us try to do that? It's only self-protection or false pride." Sally Beauman, Rebecca's Tale. Dissemble and dissimulate are synonyms.
