Bonafy

Today's new word is "bonafy."

bonafy  vb
1 : to prove good faith or earnest intent
2 : to authenticate or certify as authentic 

When someone makes a seemingly outrageous or unbelievable assertion, a proper response might be something like:

"Can you cite a reference with which to bonafy that statement?  Without some kind of proof, I cannot consider your statement to be bona fide."

A document such as a witness' testimony might require supporting documentation including a writ of bonafication.
