I love words, and I love finding words that have fallen out of use. That is the reason for the ‘buried words’ part of the title of my blog.
These words have been buried under the onslaught of newer words that are easier to say or spell, and often they were much more interesting or descriptive than the words that have replaced them. People are lazy and will just use the shortest term to describe any thing instead of putting a bit of effort in.
Don’t get me wrong, I am also guilty of this heinous crime, but this blog is my protest against it and I will use it share my favourites and any new discoveries.
This is a slang term from the 1930’s meaning nonsense, rubbish or bull**it. Quite appropriate for the title of my blog, really.
