Did you know that words become outdated?
Well, sure slang like, Daddy-o, 23 Skidoo, and cool-beans, wear their welcome. But I’m talking regular words, and they are listed as archaic when certain grammar programs find them.
I’d like to know when I became old enough that the language I used was labeled as ARCHAIC – jeez I’m not grandma Moses over here!
One of the benefits of the new grammar assistant programs, I use the paid version of Grammarly and it helps me a ton with comma usage and spelling. Sometimes it tells me my langue is archaic.
And I’m saying, “NO come on,” these words are still used every day – at least by me, some are. Hey, I used the three top words here in one poem.
Well, this list can go on and on, and it does – just click on the link to view for yourself. https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/explore/archaic-words/
Hmmm, I wonder if dude made the cut?
