Which word works

Did you know that words become outdated? 

Well, sure slang like, Daddy-o, 23 Skidoo, and cool-beans, wear their welcome. But I'm talking regular words, and they are listed as archaic when certain grammar programs find them.

I'd like to know when I became old enough that the language I used was labeled as ARCHAIC - jeez I'm not grandma Moses over here!

One of the benefits of the new grammar assistant programs, I use the paid version of Grammarly and it helps me a ton with comma usage and spelling. Sometimes it tells me my langue is archaic.

And I'm saying, "NO come on," these words are still used every day - at least by me, some are. Hey, I used the three top words here in one poem.
