Antediluvian (adjective)

[anti-duh-LOO-vee-in]

“This cute word means ‘in the period before the flood’ – as in the one Noah was in! But it can be also used in a humorous fashion to refer to something that is antiquated or old-fashioned or outdated. So you might say: ‘Her grandfather's antediluvian opinions on immigration caused conflict among his more progressive and tolerant children.’”

To hear Valerie and Allison chat more about this and more on the world of writing, blogging and publishing, check out this week's podcast episode.
