There are hundreds of obsolete words, expressions, and slang. They come and go, and you barely miss them. At some point every person is old enough to wonder, When did that change? A kind of Standard English has evolved because of our communal watching TV, Netflix, and other live-streaming services.
When I was growing up there was actual dialect. We said “warsh” for “wash,” until a teacher corrected us. And how about “garsh” for “gosh?” But no one says “gosh” anymore, ergo there is no “garsh.”
What are your favorite obsolete slang expressions? Do tell.
