I have chosen to make this group to help enhance the quality of our language.

If you have a word, archaic or modern, that you know or have found and would like to share, please feel free to share it here.

Please give spelling and definition, and source if possible.

Our words make our feelings and beliefs clear to others. 

Please contribute to this archive of knowledge as often as you like.

Nice is not at all nice, the origin meaning has been distorted.

Definition of 'Autarky'

A nation or entity that is self-sufficient. A political/economic term, Autarky comes from the Greek autarkeia - autos, meaning "self" and arkein, meaning "to be strong enough or sufficient". Autarky is achieved when an entity, such as a political state, is self-sufficient and exists without external aid.
