In*ac"cu*rate(?), a. Not accurate; not according to truth; inexact; not quite correct; incorrect; erroneous; as, in inaccurate man, narration, copy, judgment, calculation, etc. The term inaccurate is usually used when an assertion or result is near to the truth, but not exactly, or has some basis for belief; however, it is sometimes used as a gentle euphemism for wrong even if the error is flagrant.
[1913 Webster +PJC]

Syn. -- Inexact; incorrect; erroneous; faulty; imperfect; incomplete; defective.
