Any language in the world is correlated with the society and people who use that particular language; it evolves together with the society, some words get forgotten, some are in trend, others, new ones, are born. English, like any other language in the world features its own group of lost or forgotten words. We decided to revive some of them for you, so feel free to explore our 5 weird English word list. #1 FLITTERWOCHEN
The first word in our 5 weird English words represents in fact an old English expression, most probably borrowed from German meaning “fleeting weeks” and referring to the honeymoon period.
The second word in the 5 weird English words is taken from old French and it refers to animal internal organs usually eaten by peasants in a “yummy” dish known as garbage pie.
This is a 18th century word which is actually pretty actual. We are very sure you all know a fribbler somewhere. This kind of man usually says he is in love with a certain woman, but isn’t ready to commit, yet. Does it sound familiar?
This is another old word which describes a contemporary reality. This old word is the 14th century equivalent of an exterminator. If you have a rat problem, you should call the rattoner.
This is the last word in out 5 weird English words and it is the old equivalent of a bad dream or nightmare.
#Bonus Word: EYE-SERVANT
It meant a servant who only worked while his master was nearby. It became a metaphoric word describing an insincere person, so you can actually find many persons in your life to apply this term to. Do you know another weird and old English word to add to this list?
