Examples of embellishing in a Sentence

  1. Jerome K. Jerome:

    Some people are under the impression that all that is required to make a good fisherman is the ability to tell lies easily and without blushing; but this is a mistake. Mere bald fabrication is useless; the veriest tyro can manage that. It is in the circumstantial detail, the embellishing touches of probability, the general air of scrupulous -- almost of pedantic -- veracity, that the experienced angler is seen.

  2. Philip Roth:

    Undermining experience, embellishing experience, rearranging and enlarging experience into a species of mythology.
