As the largest and most dynamic collection of words ever assembled, the English language continues to expand, with hundreds of words being added annually, but not without a simultaneous loss of many words along the way. The Forgotten English calendar showcases the most intriguing examples of these discarded expressions from Britain, America, Australia, and throughout the English-speaking world. In this calendar, these words have been carefully matched with arcane holidays, traditions, etiquette, superstitions, historical curiosities, legal and medical oddities, and fascinating characters. Each entry is matched with a related vintage line drawing!
