How does Poirot know the English words for 'dissembling' and 'mendacity' but not the English word for 'yes'?

@Inskora hm. I know he mentioned pretending to know less English than he does in one book?

To trick people into underestimating him for investigations. could be a huge plot hole and inaccurate showing of how non English speakers remeber spoken English XP

@Doggo Maybe he learned English in No Man's Sky style, in which you learn words like 'isotopes' and 'spawning' before you learn words like 'your' or 'that'. :D
