Words To Bring Back: “Terrible”

– Definition: adj. Of a nature to excite terror; appaling

– Used in a sentence: “That’s the most terrible Hallowe’en costume I’ve ever seen.”

– Why: The current connotation of “terrible” as slipshod, sub-par, etc. really grinds my gears. Time to get back to roots and enjoy it as Webster and Funk & Wagnalls intended.
