Five Old Words
Here are some of my favourite lost and forgotten words in the English Language that i've been toying with for a while...
veteratorian (adj.) subtle My veteratorian hints to Ms. Crawford about her falling wig helped her save her face that day!
slimikin (adj.) small and slender I wonder how the fashion magazine babes manage to kill their taste buds just to avoid eating to keep to their slimikin form.
quaeritate (v.) to ask Although I didn't know Chinese, I managed to quaeritate a local for directions thanks to my signs handbook.
lubency (n.) willingness; pleasure Ben's lubency was spilling all over his face as Holly shyly requested him for a ride back home from the late night party.
pamphagous (adj.) eating or consuming everything People often mistake an obese person for being a pamphagous eater when he's simply just suffering a serious hormonal imbalance.
