I found a website today completely dedicated to saving old words that are no longer used. They encourage you to adopt a word (or several!), and to use it in conversation, writing, or wherever you can make it work! I already adopted the word Starrify, and it's really working out between us.
Starrify verb: to decorate with stars. I've already thought of a use for it! The first night I slept in my new apartment last year, I was surprised (and rather disgruntled) to find that the previous owner had starrified the wall with glow-in-the-dark stickers!
See! It's fun! Now follow this link and join the cause! There are words that need saving, my friends!
