うそだ isn't really a serious accusation. How would you say 'you're lying' more seriously?

It seems to me that うそだ is already strong enough, when said in normal tone (or more serious, of course), because we don't usually use in that way. Another possible strong expression would be

それはない。 (That can't be true.)

Perhaps you should compare with more casual accusing expressions such as う(っ)そだ〜 うそでしょ?

  • Note that それはない doesn't imply someone is lying. – Yosh Jun 9 '15 at 4:12
  • Logically speaking, it does not imply that someone is lying, because it can be used to point out someone's statement is untrue, regardless of his/her intention. But still it could be used to strongly insist that he/she is wrong, or telling a lie. – N. Shimode Jun 9 '15 at 9:17
  • Yes, my point was that its emphasis is on the wrong (or unlikely) part, not its being a lie or not. – Yosh Jun 9 '15 at 10:31

The answer @Unknown gave is perfect if you want more weight and directness to the accusation

Hmm.... 「うそつけっ!」, maybe? or 「うそつき!」とか・・ – Unknown May 21 at 22:04

  • What do you not understand? うそつけ! or うそをつけ is the imperative form of うそ(を)つく, and うそつき! means "(You're) a liar!" – Chocolate May 29 '15 at 23:51
