Silly Sounding Word

chicanery(noun) [shi-KAY-nah-ree, chi-KAY-nah-ree]
1. the use of tricks to deceive someone (usually to extract money from them): "Hal preferred to pay the price markup for a new car rather than dealing with the chicanery of a used car sales person."

Once in a while while reading a novel I run across a word I am too lazy to look up .This is one of those words. I always thought it was a nursery for baby chicks.....See how wrong I was?
