Is there something like a thesaurus that offers terms more often used in the past?
For instance, I beg you would, in Shakespearean times, be prithee, while chicks during the 1920s would be dolls.
Meta: Seeing how the question on a thesaurus with archaic and obsolete words and several other thesaurus-related questions have been closed, I fear this one might be, too. However, I am hoping it’s more on-topic. Please, if this must be closed, at least tell me where I should go to receive a good answer.
