Word of the Day 1/17/14 Desuetude

Desuetude (noun)
des·ue·tude [des-wi-tood, -tyood]


noun
the state of being no longer used or practiced.

Origin: 1425–75; late Middle English < Latin dēsuētūdo, equivalent to dēsuē-, base of dēsuēscere to become disaccustomed to, unlearn ( dē- de- + suēscere to become accustomed to) + -tūdō -tude

Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.
