Twenty-Seven Words That Have Changed Meaning

Leave a comment

This edition of the List Show, hosted by John Green, contains twenty-seven words that have changed meaning over time.
It’s interesting to see how in some cases the form of the word still shows the link to other words which have to do with the original meaning, and how what seems like a weird word. (like calling someone’s face their ‘mug’) make sense.
It will literally never make sense that literally can now mean the same thing as figuratively even though their original meanings are opposite.
