I’ve just discovered the obsolete verb “maudle”, from OED’s sense 2 of the adjective “maudlin”:
2. Having reached the stage of drunkenness characterized by tearful sentimentality and effusive displays of affection; characteristic of (the behaviour of) someone who has reached this stage.
As far as I know there’s no word with exactly the same meaning (if there is, don’t bother - I like the word anyway) but it made me wonder what other obsolete words are worthy of revival. Suggestions?
