Definition: noticeably contrived

Sentence example: This is a hokey story, but it directs us to a truth about our culture. People tend to value money and things over what is really important in life: other people.

The Power Memory Strategy:

  • Spelling wise, hokey looks similar to hoax
  • Alternatively, imagine Singaporeans who try very hard to pull off the British accent ⇒  sounds so hokey!
