gull vs gall :

gull or gall

“How could you have the nerve, the chutzpah, the effrontery, the unmitigated gall to claim you didn’t cheat because it was your girlfriend who copied from the Web when she wrote your paper for you?”This sense of “gall” has nothing to do with seabirds, so don’t say “How could you have the gull?”
