Dear Erin and others,
I often use Cambridge dictionary online to look up new words.
Many words in it are noted " formal and dated".
For example :
illadjective [before n, not gradable]
FORMAL OR DATED It was just ill (=bad) fortune/luck that the burglar picked on her house.
Did you experience any ill effects from the treatment?
adverb [not gradable]
FORMAL OR DATED
(formal or dated) If you speak/think ill of someone, you talk or think about them in an unkind way.
Don't speak ill of the dead, Mary.
I am wondering whether these dated words are used yet in the TOEFL?
