Words Even Older than Me

m48ortalM48ortal on 03/15/2009

WordsEvenOlderthanMe Photo Eeny-Meeny Chili-Beany... This quiz contains words that have passed from common usage in the English language. Some, I'm sure, never actually made it into 'common' usage at all. While organizing my bookshelf, I found a small book by Robert Schachner and John Whited titled "Lost Words of the English Language." Judging by the vocabulary quizzes the Sploofus editors produce, I'm fairly sure it is in their library. I'll try to stick to words we have some chance of reasoning out. If you know that Talghairm is a noun meaning 'to see into the future by lying in a bullock's hide behind a waterfall,' this quiz will be no trouble for you. If not, you have been warned. I am hesitant in producing quizzes of this difficulty because there are some players (though not you, of course) who will take quizzes that they are unready for, then blame the quiz author for their low score. When they trash my ratings, I then have to saddle up my camel, load my zumbooruk, and hunt them down. Please don't make me do this. If you don't enjoy learning new (or in this case, old) words, then please find a simpler quiz. This quiz is meant to challenge the trivia masters. Is that you? If so, enjoy! If not, beware the zumbooruk...
