Word: Obsolete Words

This list of obsolete words in the English language needs to be spread. I came by it on the blog Like Being Read To From Dictionaries, who in turn came by it from Grognardia.

My favourites are:
Jargoglev. - to confuse, jumble.
Ludibriousadj. - apt to be a subject of jest or mockery.
Sanguinolencynoun - addiction to bloodshed.

I confess I delictate in corrades like this one, even if it causes perissology.
