Every word has a meaning, but over the years those meanings change. Dip into these helpfully illustrated pages and you’ll find many of the words you use every day without ever realising that their up-to-date definition is something entirely different. Words like ‘bunny’ (rather like a bun), or ‘cherish’ (rather like a chair), or ‘Cardiology’ (the study of knitwear).
