Every year hundreds of new words are added to the Oxford English Dictionary and people contentiously evolve the language making many words obsolete. Alongside our infographic on least spoke languages we thought that an infographic on least used English words would make sense.

Throughout our research, we found many amusing words such as “Messmate” (meaning: a person with whom one eats with regularly) and  “Eye servant”  (meaning: one that attends to duty only when watched).

See 10 words no one uses (but they probably should).


Do you know any other words that noone uses but probably should?
