From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 [gcide]: Pretense \Pre*tense"\, Pretence \Pre*tence\, n. [LL. praetensus, for L. praetentus, p. p. of praetendere. See {Pretend}, and cf. {Tension}.] 1. The act of laying claim; the claim laid; assumption; pretension. --Spenser. [1913 Webster] Primogeniture can not have any pretense to a right of solely inheriting property or power. --Locke. [1913 Webster] I went to Lambeth with Sir R. Brown's pretense to the wardenship of Merton College, Oxford. --Evelyn. [1913 Webster] 2. The act of holding out, or offering, to others something false or feigned; presentation of what is deceptive or hypocritical; deception by showing what is unreal and concealing what is real; false show; simulation; as, pretense of illness; under pretense of patriotism; on pretense of revenging C[ae]sar's death. [1913 Webster] 3. That which is pretended; false, deceptive, or hypocritical show, argument, or reason; pretext; feint.
