    2. Rear means the back of something or an animal rising up onto its back legs. 1. The garden was at the rear of the house. 2. The horse reared in fright. In the second example there is a similarity to raise but not the same. You could use 'rose onto its back legs' here and the meaning would be understood but 'rear' is the proper term. In the first example you can't use 'raise' Cram To force a lot of things into a small space. To do many things in a short period of time. To try to learn a lot of things very quickly for an exam. Your sentences here are correct but for the second one ' I had my hands crammed into my coat pockets' sounds better. For 'rove' you can also use 'wander'. 1. She's been wandering about all day..... Pleat This is a double or multiple fold in material.

    2. I come from the US, so I can't speak for certain about UK English. When you ask if something is still used, I'll assume you mean in common speech/conversation. Literature and extremely articulate and (usually) intelligent people will often use words that most people don't, so I am ignoring those cases and considering the average. -Rear: "My uncle still rears cattle." I hear the phrase "raises cattle" more often than "rears cattle", but it is still used. You would not rear a box above your head, but you would raise it. Rearing a child means raising it (to grow up). Raising a child could mean raising it (to grow up) or raising it (upwards). To cram: "I crammed all of my studying in on the night before the test." "I could barely cram all of my clothes into my suitcase." This word is still used quite often. There's a level of roughness associated with it (there's no such thing as neatly cramming something). I would not consider your "hands crammed into my coat" sentence good use of the word. The other example you gave is good. To rove: This is not a word I ever see. It's similar to wander, yes, but it seems to be used with the context of travel/trips. "Roving across the U.S.," could be one example. To damp: I usually only see this verb in the form "dampen." "Uncle Todd's outburst really dampened everybody's mood." "You should dampen that fire before it gets worse." Pleat: This word has to do with making clothes, so it is not in my field of expertise. It may be a technical term that is still used, but I have not come across it in everyday speech. I don't know. Dimple: Your usage is correct here. It's a commonly used word. To jab: Your usage is correct. This word is commonly used to describe such a situation. Another example could be: "Ow! I accidentally jabbed myself with my pencil." To buckle to: I can't say I've ever heard this one before. I can't speak for your usage of the word, but I can say that it is not common at all. To accost: Your usage is correct. This is still a commonly used word. To gad: Not a word I ever come across. Your usage seems correct, but this word is not commonly used. To heave: I do hear it from time to time. "He heaved the rock forward." "He heaved his great axe over his head before finally dropping it on his foe." I hear it used more when describing Medieval combat rather than the heaving of objects around the house but it can be used for both. Grimly: Your usage seems a bit off. Grimly/grim usually has a level of dread, fear, or seriousness associated with it. "The outcome looked grim." "My husband looked grimly at me when he heard the news." "His grim expression made me anxious." This word is still commonly used. Doze: The most common use of this word is in the form "doze off." "Instead of finishing his chores, Tom dozed off under the apple tree." "The accident occurred after the driver dozed off while behind the wheel." I have never heard the phrase "have a doze," so I would avoid using it like that. This phrase is still commonly used. To beguile: Your usage is correct, but I don't think this word is used often in everyday speech. It sounds dated or like something someone who tries to use colorful speech would say. To droop: Your usage is correct. "Eyes drooping" is still in common use, and other forms might have their situational uses, so this word is still relevant. That's my opinion and reflection on each of these words. Again, I am looking at it from the point of view of an average American and considering them for typical speech. One you get into literature or into conversation with extremely articulate and (usually) intelligent people, some of these words (as well as many other uncommon ones) might see some use, but that is not the general case.
