Description
Did you know that a horse apple is actually a type of orange? Or that a whiffletree is not a tree at all? Or that a goathead has nothing to do with goats or their heads? What are pie birds and why don't we see them too often any longer? And when does a broadcast have nothing to do with television or radio? Here are 1,000 old-fashioned words that are quickly slipping from America's vocabulary, so if you want to know where to put a snaffle or how to use a battling stick, when to perform the Green Corn Stomp Dance or want to know what a mountain boomer is, you'll find the answers here.
