I caught an item on breakfast TV about new words that had just made it into the dictionary. This is my favourite and one that I think many of us will find useful.

Quacksalver
Noun: A pedlar of false cures.

    A good word, Slosh (especially for these forums :roll: ) but not new. It's one of several old words uncovered by York Uni. They'd fallen into disuse but still seem relevant. Here's the article giving the others http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-41266000 I rather like 'rouzy-bouzy' - boisterously drunk :lol:

    I must admit I missed the intro to the item. I am going to be making good use of it. Think it's due to be revived.
