Gone but not forgotten
Book Review: Forgotten English, by Jeffrey Kacirk
It may just be that I am well educated, but I think there is a notable US bias in some of the words selected for discussion, as there were a few that I would not have filed under "forgotten", even though their meanings may have shifted somewhat from the original. Perhaps the main conclusion to be drawn from many of the words is the amount of medical quackery, or perhaps that any number of unpleasant treatments would take a patient's mind off their original ailment.
