Have you got dysania? Perhaps it is because you are philogrobilized! So stop twattling about it and learn a few of these sweet olde-school words!

Like everything else, language changes and evolves over time, especially so in these days of mass communication, memes, easy cultural exchange and increasing standardization of a global 'internet language.'

Whether this is to our benefit or detriment is up to you to decide, but the reality is that in a more visually oriented world, our vocabularies are decreasing. What to do about this? Read more? Buy a dictionary? Get together a crew and perform one of Shakespeare's plays in your living room?

A good place to start is to check out this awesome list that we at Bored Panda have compiled. Satisfyingly descriptive, amusing and sometimes bafflingly unnecessary words from ye olde times that you can impress your mates with!

Scroll down to check them out below, and don't forget to vote for your faves!

My boss: Why you late? ; Me: Well, I got dysania. ; My boss: it is bad? You can take sick leave if you want.

I would say British countryside girls are like this, i am not saying everyone. Also, it's not a bad thing. Manners are manners, no matter what age.
