Words are postage stamps

Words are only postage stamps delivering the object for you to unwrap - George Bernard Shaw

So recently some friends and I were talking about words, and we started listing words we feel have either fallen from use and should be welcomed back, or are just great words that aren't used enough - and I've continued that discussion with other friends. A selection:

- wont (as in "I was walking along the seaside, as is my wont")
- vile
- efficacious
- nonce

More?
