These Forgotten Sassy English Words Need To Make A Serious Comeback


Advertisement

Like people (and the world around us), language(s) evolve over time, which means our vocabulary is constantly getting modified. Unfortunately, this also means that some words will be long forgotten. There are some words that used to serve a purpose that ended up disappearing into oblivion. Thankfully, we’ve managed to bring back a few forgotten English words that were so cool. We’re seriously hoping these become trendy again!

 Fudgel

This word describes pretty much one of the things we all pretend to do while at work. It’s too bad that the word remained behind in the 18th century, because let’s face it, we’d all be using it right now!

Twattling

If you were born in the 16th century, you were probably called out for twattling too much with your friends or your neighbors. But today, we “spill the tea” and “gossip like there’s no tomorrow.” So really, nothing has changed. We just have different slang for the same word!

Groke

Some of us call this act “dog staring” or “vulturing,” but it was once called Groke by the Scottish people many, many years ago. Oh, but we’re sure it was just as annoying way back as it is today. But whatever you do, don’t give in and share your food!

Lanspresado

In today’s world, we’ve subbed this term for the word “children,” who are like vampires thirsty for cash. All jokes aside, it’s nice to see that not much has changed over the last 300 years. We still run into those “friends” who always manage to leave their wallets at home.
