Let’s Bring Back These Words and Phrases

Let's Bring Back Lost Language Edition

Last week, in a giveaway sponsored by Chronicle Books and Let’s Bring Back: The Lost Language Edition, we asked you to share the good old-fashioned words and phrases you want to bring back into common use.

We were tickled pink by all the entries we received, and we’ve collected our favorites for you here. You Riot readers are just the tops! And because you’re so well, we’ve randomly selected five participants to receive the book! Thanks to all of you who chimed in. We love you a bushel and a peck.
