The ever-evolving nature of language has its drawbacks, and one of these drawbacks is that many words fall out of use and are forgotten, becoming obsolete remnants found in dictionaries alone. But some of these rare old words are really cool and can describe things we usually need a whole sentence for. For instance, instead of saying “let’s postpone until the day after tomorrow”, you can simply say “let’s perendinate”, how convenient is that (and also fun to say)? We think that all 17 old words on the list below are missing links in our vocabulary and definitely deserve to be brought back into day-to-day speech. Curious to find out what they are?
