Quick Overview

Here is a compendium of archaic words, or words that have almost completely fallen out of use or have changed their meanings. Paperback edition

Diarmaid Ó Muirithe’s column Words We Use has been a feature of The Irish Times over many years and has formed a critically acclaimed book of the same name. Now Words We Don’t Use (much anymore) is a highly entertaining compendium of words which are either on the brink of extinction or have already been deemed obsolete by the great dictionaries.

Ó Muirithe’s gentle and witty style reveals his vast knowledge and scholarship in an accessible way. Inside you will find words such as manable, meaning a girl of marriageable age, and adamite, a person who appears nude in public, among many others that you might want to casually drop into your everyday conversation! Words We Don’t Use is a wordsmith’s delight.
