As Dr. Bob has started a topic on words whose meanings have radically changed, may we do the same thing with English words used in 1600(not necessarily from the AV or any other bible of the day) that are seldom-if-ever used today. The works of Shakespeare should be a good source. My word is GONFALON. It's a flag that hangs from a crosspiece or frame & was commonly used in the tales of chivalry. The last-known use in literature that I know of is in this 1910 poem by Franklin P. Adams: Those 3 men were a famous double-play combo of the time. Even though there were infields who made far more DPs, this Cub infield seemed to make'em when they did the most damage to the opponent, and in front of the biggest crowds at the biggest games. All three of'em are in the HOF. YOUR turn!
