Response to Pacifist Patriot (Reply #7)

10. I'm trying to remember a word from the The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant

book series by Stephen R. Donaldson. He must have waited with great patience to drop this one, but I can't find it even in discussions of his works. It was an archaic word meaning archaic. Any ideas?
I guess it is good we have the internet now, many modern "dictionaries" have dropped the old words so they can keep up with the newest slang. Reading Poe, Hawthorne, or Mehlville would be impossible with one of those. I still use my father's dictionary from 1958. It has only failed me once.
