Superficies is a noun that refers to the external aspect or appearance of something.
The Latin prefix super (SOO pair) means ‘top’ or ‘surface.’ while facies (FAH chez) means ‘face’ or ‘aspect.’ When combined we get a word that refers to the surface or outer appearance of a thing. On a side note, our word of the day ends with an S whether it’s used in the singular or plural.
When I first bought it, the car’s superficies looked fine. But I later discovered that its interior was in horrible shape.
