Words you don't hear everyday...

like “Spiffy”

or “Fantastic”

or “terrific”

What are some words you don’t hear everyday?

I think RPGC should have an “Adopt a word” week where someone picks a word and uses it so much it becomes annoying. But we don’t want the little “ubers” to feel left out, do we?

So please. Think of the dictionarys.

Desultory. In fact, I don’t even know what it means.

Antidisestablishmentarianism. Pity, isn’t it.

I was gonna say Wang, but sadly enough I hear that word pretty much.

Indubidably. So uncommon, I think I’ve spelt it wrong…but at least it proves that The Simpsons can be educational! :slight_smile:


Nul, you just picked that off Dictionary.com’s word of the day!

You don’t hear bully alot. Well, the Teddy Roosevelt definition of bully.

That’s the Pickled Beef one, right?

Yeah, I can’t remember the last time I heard someone use that word.

“Socially responsible”


I think those two are banned at this job. <_<


“Wow, you’re right!”

Groovy, Rad, Gnarly

I should start saying tose more.


Limey, nuh uh. He uses it as in good or great.


Special (without being followed by someone saying “Yeah, SPECIAL ED!!! HA HA HA!!!”)

I use the word spiffy a lot. I really like the word nifty, but I have a feeling it’s also on the infrequent use list.
