I was surprised to see slug-a-bed (someone who likes a lie-in) on a list of “lost” English words that the BBC reported on a few days ago. That’s one I know, sometimes use and try not to exemplify too much!

Unfortunately I was unsuccessful in tracking down the full list – the first few pages of Google results are swamped with references to the list from a range of media sites but I didn’t find any that went back to the original source. However, I did discover The Phrontistery, another online source for obscure and archaic words, so do venustate your vocabulary with that.
