Like "cellar" & "scurvy" are more outdated than "swain?" I don't think so...



Okay, swain - pretty outdated . . .

cellar - kinda regional

scurvy - relegated (for the most part) to the third world . . .

Grumpy 'til the day I die.

"wine cellar" - don't people still have these?

Isn't "scurvy" is used by the fisherman guy on the Simpsons? Arrrr!

"draw"

Nobody draws anymore. Everybody "photoshops" or "renders."

OK, this is more a "bitch & moan" than an unheard word.

Close enough.

"Video Killed the Radio Star" is the first video ever played on MTV.

I'd better not get involved here as a Brit...cuz we use words that none of you would know anyway, sooooo it'd be a hard thing to determine which words were obsolete or, should I say: never used anymore when they're not used over here anyway. Pfft! Just my 2 pennies' worth... ;-P



nope. Withdrawing room.
