Ah, the funny words we used to say…
Or rather the funny words I have never said but I will now just to see the “gloppened” expressions on everyone’s faces. (I think I have issues)
*Gloppened – “surprised” – Robert William’s List of Ancient Words of the West Riding of Yorkshire, 1814
“[From] gloppen, to stare in amazement, to be startled or frightened; to startle, frighten; gloppenedly, in a state of alarm; gloppening, distressed, sorrowful. Also aglopened, forgloppened.” – Sir James Murray’s New English Dictionary, 1888.
