With kind permission from Stephen who compiled this wonderful site, http://phrontistery.info/index.html – I am sharing words lost in modern day language.
To play the harp – If you plan to citharize, prepare to build up calluses on your fingers.
Belonging or pertaining to gypsies – The gipseian rhythms made her feel as if she were in the Middle East.
resembling a harp or stringed instrument – Her renown as a maker of psalloid instruments led to a position at the royal court.
Now the fun part to make up a paragraph using them all…
The gipseian troupe encircled the campfire as the young woman citharize the unusual psalloid instrument that vaguely resembled a harp.
Can you form a sentence with these words?
