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 Q  Quadragenarian:  A person who is 40 years old. Doesn't this make turning 40 sound really old?

 Quaestuary:  Money Making.

 Quagswag:  To shake back and forth.

 Quaintrelle:  A well-dressed woman.

 Qualtagh:  This is the first person you meet after leaving your house on some special occasion. Or, the first person entering a house on New Year's Day (or called a first-foot). The New Year's qualtagh is suppose to be a dark-haired man. A red-headed or female qualtagh unlucky. Other things that bring luck on New Year's Day are serving black-eyed peas, having the qualtagh bring shortbread and whiskey; and sweeping all the garbage in the house out through the front door before midnight on New Year's Eve (so that any misfortune of the past year is gone and not to return.)

 Quantophrenia:  An obsessive reliance on mathematical methods or results.

 Quatervois:  Crossroads.
