  1. 10 Almost-Extinct Words You Should Start Using Right Away

    Whenever the dictionary gets updated, some words face the chopping block. If you would be sad to see “skedaddle” skedaddle from our language, then add it (and the rest of these little-used words) back to your everyday vocabulary—before they’re gone forever.

    Definition: To embroil, confuse, or entangle. Usage: Mom's plants dangled, I got embrangled, and now I have two sprained ankles.

    Definition: waste matter; scum. Usage: Sanitation workers were understandably cross when my medieval role-play group started dumping their recrement directly into the street.

    Definition: A whirring sound, as of the wings of birds in flight. Usage: We heard a mightyskirr overhead when the pigeons left their roost, followed by a plop, followed by an expletive.
    Definition: Resembling or assuming the form of a shrub. Usage: A few weeks without a haircut and my poodle looks positively frutescent.
    Definition: The condition of being a woman; femininity. Usage: Frank was banned from the sorority due to his remarkable lack of muliebrity.
