Language has evolved over time, but that doesn't mean that we should forget about the great Victorian words that our ancestors used. There are always words that drop out of usage, even though they're perfectly acceptable. There are some Victorian words that never should have disappeared throughout the years. Here are a few that we should consider bringing back.

1. Slattern

This is one of the Victorian words that is meant to insult another person. It means 'dirty' or 'untidy' and is our equivalent of calling someone a slut. While you shouldn't insult anyone for their sexual experience, slattern seems like a nicer alternative to use. It doesn't sound as harsh and can even appear a bit classy. If you want to expand your vocabulary, this is one of the words you can add to the collection.
