Word of the Day: godwottery

What's "the word I'm thinking of"? Today, it's....

godwottery [god-WOT-uhr-ee] noun (TWITO, page 62)

1. Elaborate gardening
2. The use of archaic language

Verily, I say, 'tis most vexing to issue forth in antique jottings, as if from the honeyed pen of Shakespeare. One feels like an artless fly-bitten coxcomb! Or a lumpish doghearted wagtail! Or even an impertinent flap-mouthed dewberry! Fie on it! Methinks I must leave off with this gleeking, sheep-biting godwottery! Art thou in agreement?
