Forgotten and archaic words

I like weird, unusual, atypical and archaic words, and it always frustrates me when I go hunting for new words at the lack of really good sites for such collections. I assume that I’m not the only one who does this (although I could very well be wrong). Not that my list will be much or any better, but I figured I’d start something with the intent of being a stop along the way for fun words that you don’t normally encounter on a daily basis.

I’ve started a new page on the site to collect some interesting, largely forgotten and archaic, words. It only has about a dozen or so right now, but I intend for it to be a “living document” that grows as I find new things to add. Please feel free to leave suggestions here or on the page itself — I wouldn’t mind some crowdsourced approach to such a thing. Be sure to at least point to where I can confirm the definition so that I can link to it. I’d like to stick to largely standard sources for evidence of definitions, but am open to alternatives as long as they are trustworthy.
