Read many pd books lately? From Doyle to Christie to Wells, there are many words that haven't been used for decades. Even before my time.
Even in contemporary reading, most of us occasionally run across words we aren't familiar with.
Instead of just ignoring them, we like to know their meanings.
I didn't think I would use the dictionary, either. But it is amazing how many words I skimmed over, and now I know the exact meaning, out of context.
However, no folders, no order.
