It has come to my attention that many wonderful old words are dying out of our language. Please do help to keep them alive. Your help could save a fascinating word from a sad and lonely demise, and no donations or subscriptions are asked. You can help simply by using old-fashioned words, thus bringing them back into the English language (speakers of other languages are invited to do their bit for their own native tongue, but I may be unable to supply you with suggestions).
To assist you in this noble cause, I shall post blog updates entitled 'SOS: Word of the Day', whenever I come across a particularly interesting example. If you yourself know of any worthy recipients of these attentions, please do mention them in the comments.
Without further ado, our very first word of the day:
wamblecropt: adj, afflicted with queasiness. From wamble, a rolling or uneasiness of the stomach.
I am indebted to Mark Forsyth, whose excellent book, The Etymologicon, and blog brought this word and a number of others to my attention.
So next time you eat a little too much or read too long in the passenger seat of a car, why not say you're feeling a little wamblecropt.
