Old Word Friday: NOSCIBLE

Today’s Old Word Friday is noscible.

Noscible is an adjective that was used mostly around 1654. The word isn’t as noscible as it was back then and so that’s why it finds itself on this list of forgettable old words.

If you haven’t guess the meaning of the word from the last sentence noscible pretty much means ‘knowable or something well-known’. Now that previous sentence probably makes a lot more sense.

How to pronounce the word:

NO – SIB – LE

Should this word come back?

I think so. It is a good word and I love how it sounds in sentences. Noscible, when used correctly, sounds like the word you are wanting to use. It also has a similar sound to noticeable… which is possibly why this word would work in modern conversation. I know I’ll be trying to use it in my regular conversations from now on… but I think by now people expect me to have a old style vocabulary. XD

I love English and I also Hate it!

Hello World Out There World!

Was exploring Facebook the other day when I came across this interesting post:

onlyhimlove

I love finding things like this. It not only shows you how awesome the English language is but also how horribly nightmarish you can be. Now, for those who don’t have the time to make up these sentences – don’t worry I’ve got you covered:

Is there anyone else that thinks this is just amazing? Let me know in the comments below and until next time – toodles! :3

Old Word Friday:BAJULATE

This week’s old word is BAJULATE.

Bajulate is a verb believed to have been created during 1613-1662. The exact creator of this word is unknown and origin of original work is unknown. What is known is that this word is Latin based and it means ‘to bear a heavy burden’.

Examples of how to use this in a sentence:

Everyone knew the old sage was bajulate when it came to protecting his young apprentice.

 

My suggestion would be to try and avoid using this word unless you wish to confuse people. Yes, it is interesting but there a various tenses to use depending on the formation of the sentence and as this is a Latin based word, you get into complicated plurals that aren’t as easily translated into what our common based Latin derived English has developed into. If you still wish for whatever nightmarish reason to use this word in your works I would suggest checking out the links connected to THIS page and learning all you can about it.

Until next time – toodles!
