4  Some words are antiquated (old fashioned) and not often used in current language, but were in more widespread use during Poe’s time.  Poe often published his stories in magazines which paid writers by the amount of words. In some cases, this may have contributed to some unique syntax (sentence structure)by Poe.  Much of Poe’s language is still used today, but is unfamiliar vocabulary to you as a ninth grader. Learners recognize that they haven’t learned all of the words in the English language yet.
