Obsolescent Words

Some words in the English seem to be  dying out, or have died out.  Who these days says:

  • Editress
  • Manageress

I guess it’s the suffix that has died out, rather than the word per se.

But what about the following words?

  • Aerodrome
  • Rivulet
  • Charabanc

Who actually uses those words these days?  Just sayin’…

Have an obsolescent day, won’t you!
