A thread dedicated to improuve the vocabulary of all forum members and generally raise the cultural level of the universe.

Words must be authentic (feel free to create an Unword thread for created words) and a supporting reference should ideally be provided.~

To get the ball going - here's today word and I dare the guys to use it in the next podcast Smile...

There are some words that should never make it into the OED. They are just trying to be hip and cool, it doesn't work.

It's a Glocking shame I tell ya. .

RE: Word of the day
Antidisestablishmentarianism is by some measures the longest word in the English language and it must be genuine because Firefox's spellchecker recognises it, which is more then it does the word "spellchecker".

I fear it's a word that should be rather than one that actually is.

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=tosspot
Tosspot
Originally a word for someone who is a drunkard, over-fond of ale, of tossing the pot of ale back.

Earliest example of this known is in 16th century Elizabethan English,
Shakespeare's play "Twelfth Night", has the word in the closing part of the play, in Feste's song.

Nice to see it's still used, even if the meaning could be slightly different.
"But when I came unto my beds,
With hey, ho, the wind and the rain,
With toss-pots still had drunken heads,
For the rain it raineth every day."
