We hope you enjoyed our last infographic, 16 Young Words for Old People, as much as we enjoyed it.

Did you try using any of the words? Did you feel awkward, or did you fit right in with your audience? We saw a few reports in the comments, so keep them coming!

Because this week, we offer our equally scintillating sequel, 16 Old Words for Young People.

There’s a lot of emphasis on simple writing and plain language these days, but these obsolete, sometimes complicated words surely added a lot of colour to conversations and books.

Do your grandparents or great-grandparents use any funny words you’ve never heard anywhere else? We’d love it if you shared them in the comments below!

In the meantime, I’d better stop fudgeling and start working on another infographic.
