A Compendium of Lost Words

 Modern linguistics tells us that language constantly evolves. Usually, though, that statement refers to contemporary trends in language. By contrast, perhaps the evolution of language may also apply to words that are not merely archaic, but essentially extinct.

With that thought in mind, take a look at the compendium of lost words, and see whether you find any that are worth reviving.
