GigglePEDIA Every generation creates its own terms as a way of expressing themselves or the times they live in. So, as our world changes, words come and go. Below are some words that have either been lost in time, or are very seldom used. They all look and sound a bit weird, which also makes them fun!

Glossary N  Nabocklish!:  An Irish explanation that is along the same lines as today's phrase, "Leave it alone!"

 Nacket:  A male that is impertinent and rude.

 Nannicock:  Would you believe that this word is so rare, the meaning is unknown. Possible meaning from Jeanette Schramm: "The word, "/nanny/" generally refers to a female caretaker, other than the mother - the idea of maternity or maternalism; feminine characteristics (which are oft thought of in partnership with children and childbearing). The term, "/cock/" often is used in reference to the male chicken or as a common suffix to a male personal title. Given these two ideas, I see them to be a self-contradiction when combined. Along those lines, it could possibly mean "/a man who raises a child single-handedly/," or one who chooses to, at least. I also believe it could either mean an "/effeminate male/," or perhaps a transvestite. I do not know how prevalent transvestitism actually was a century or more ago, but I would assume it was not extremely common. If that is the case, it could be argued that the rarity of the term fits the rarity of the practice, making the proposed definition a likely candidate also."

 Naufragate:  To wreck something.

 Nightwhat:  Means nearly or almost. (Obsolete)

 Nihilarian:  A person who deals with things of no importance.

 Nomothete:  Lawgiver or legislator.

 Notarikon:  When you take a word and create a new word from either the letters from the beginning of that original word or the letters from the end of that original word. I've seen this in on-line games. For example: You take the word "Example" and using the first two letters "EX" you then create = Extra. You take the last two letters LE and create = Letter. Both the words Extra and Letter are notarikons.

 Nudiustertian:  I love this word! It means the day before yesterday. We should start to use this more again.
