I very strongly disagree with the idea of avoiding words you don't hear on a daily basis. That will inevitably lead to atavism.

I have such a huge problem with @Tannalein's comment that I'm going to have to expand the question to address it. I am absolutely astonished that three people are backing that comment.

comment Believable (but easy) archaic English
True. I started thinking about it in the context of having a character who always speaks in a foreign language, and that doesn't seem so bad. Perhaps. @SF, try it! See how it goes.

comment How does one write a character smarter than oneself?
They say God created the world in 7 days, but what they don't tell you is how much outlining and googling he did in the years prior.

comment What makes first person plural a tricky narrative voice?
Unfortunately, @Tannalein, the kind of people who end up demolishing half the town and getting into fights with the opposing team's fans are also usually not the kind of people who read many books.

Why the hell do you want to write in archaic English? You think people want to read that shit? Tell a great story in an incomprehensible way, nobody likes your story.

comment Does stilted english means that the writer is dumb in using the langauge?
It's possible that I'm not understanding the question. But it sounds like you're saying, if someone writes badly in a language, are they a bad writer in that language?
