Context: BBC Radio 4, Today Programme, today. John Humphrys, referring to a new "comedy" programme coming on Radio 4, read out the programme blurb from his script. This ended with "....something to make you chuckle." JH added " - a quaint old word." Hrrummpphh. Is chuckle a quaint old word? It has been used here at least ten times this year so it seems to be alive and well. (OK so I used it twice.) Views please?
