Aw, man! I learned that in German not too long ago and I've forgotten it!

At the moment I'm learning a lot of dated Irish English/UK English slang from reading Behan's Borstal boy. Like "screwing" for "burglary" and "scoff" for "food".

Gaiter, noun.
1. A covering for the ankle and instep (cf. spats)
2. A covering from the knee to the instep
3. Part of the ecclesiastical garb of a bishop

Now that I've learnt it, I rememer having heard of 'wading gaiters', and probably seen them, though actually what I think I've seen referred to as wading gaiters may not have been, as they rose above the knee.

"Gaiters" are both the weird things that american horseriders wear (fabric pretending to be greaves), and those long sock things that anglican churchmen wear in period dramas. They're also apparently the little band things that some soldiers used to have holding the ends of their trousers tight. There may even be other uses!

Thanks, potentially useful word.

The other day I learned "midden" because a book I was reading kept using it and I'd never seen it before. Then literally the very next day I was reading another, completely unrelated book which used it twice.

There's a word for that, isn't there?

Learned this one at the open day for the (I was actually there for the specifically linguistics sections, but you couldn't avoid getting some stuff about the MML as well):

I just learnt the word echnos (ɛxnɔs) which is Welsh for the night before yesterday / the night before last. I like it, it's a pretty word. :-D

Me and a French speaker just learned that s'emporter can be used for a horse as in:

Le cheval s'est emporté quand il a ouvert le portail.
The horse bolted off when he opened the gate.

Also I learned that French has weird words for stage right and stage left which respectively are le côté jardin et le côté cour.

I learned all these words from trying to translate part of my grandfather's diary today since my internet connection had gone out and I could do it without one:

കെടുതി [kɛˈɖʊd̪i] 'ruin, loss, danger, risk, disease'
മുക്കോണ് [muˈkoːɳɯ] 'triangle'
വർദ്ധിപ്പിക്കുക [ʋərd̪ʱiˈpikʲʊga] 'to increase, multiply, grow, prosper, become better'
കവിയുക [kəˈʋijʊga] 'to exceed, overflow, go beyond limits'
കാഴ്ചപ്പാട് [kaːɻt͡ʃəˈpaːɖɯ] 'range of vision, view, standpoint, point of view, stance'
വത്സരം [ˈʋəlsəɾəm] 'year'
പ്രതിസന്ധി [prəd̪iˈsən̪d̪ʱi] 'crisis, critical juncture'
അപേക്ഷിക്കുക [əˈbeːʈʃikʲʊga] 'to request, apply for'

(Sort of) learned two more words today:

മട [məˈɖa] - my dad claimed today that this word means 'screen' and used it in this sense. However, neither of my dictionaries appears to agree.

കാഞ്ഞിരം [ˈkaːɲɪɾəm] 'strychnine tree', from my mom's mom's family name [ˈkaːɲɪɾəpəɭɭɪl], and from there:

strychnine, which apparently is pronounced [ˈst͡ʃɹɪk.niːn]
