A brief list of underused words

In no particular order, these are words that are (in my opinion) not used as often as they should be.

  • ascertain
  • vitriol
  • gainsay
  • disheveled
  • lackadaisical
  • facetious
  • murderous
  • echelon
  • counsel
  • tutelage
  • ascension
  • meretricious
  • mellifluous
  • extraordinaire
  • waylay
