Reader-suggested Words That Should Make a Comeback

Temperance wrote to suggest a word that should make a comeback:


n. a drunkard -- Webster's New World College Dictionary

She came across it on this Netflix page.

Could this be the best word ever? Quite possibly.

I can envision a world where Mel Gibson, before getting into his car on a Malibu Saturday night, would imagine this word used about him in news reports. Then he would call a cab.

Thanks for the suggestion, Temperance.
