If you share my enthusiasm for interesting words and phrases, give this blog a try! It's just for grins and giggles.

This is a lost word used back in the 15 - 1600s. It means in the dark. As in: I stumbled murklins through the garage trying to find the light switch.

I absolutely love this word! It totally sounds like it doesn't fit in context, though, really, it does. I found it on a different site a while ago and I was disappointed to find that it was not on dictionary.com
I'm glad to find someone else who is fond of odd words. :)
In fact, as I type this, I am murklins. Sadly, there is a squiggly line underneath "murklins". Let's bring the word back!

I love it! Most obsolete or archaic words sound terrible, words that deserve to be forgotten. This is almost poetic.
