Writer Research Help: some words NOT in use in 1900 | @Darrah_Glass #slang

“With Ganymede Quartet, I tried to make all the things that weren’t slavery in the 20th century as historically accurate as possible, and that included the language I used. Here are some words that would have come in handy but were not appropriate for the time period.”
