    i have a friend who claims not to lie. However i like to point out to her that she also don't speak up to close friends and family about 'truths' she has witnessed.
    Any ideas?

    I don't believe it's considered lying. At least, not by the courts who make witnesses tell "the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth."

    Its called 'half truths'.

    Depending on how you go about withholding the truth it can be a deliberate deception - and thus might fall under the term 'lie'. However if your aim is merely to say that she is wrong to withhold the truth, you could say that without needing to accuse her of lying. Never telling a lie does not make a person righteous.

    I don't consider that lying, at least not on the surface of it.

    It can't be lying if she's not uttering the words, regardless of how you'd like to be judging it.

    The definition of the word "lie" makes her a liar, to herself and to others.
    Also, the definition of the word "spin" makes that a lie.
