Added DiffLines:

* "Spunk" used to be synonymous with pluck, moxie, fight, and spirit - as in YouGotSpunk. Nowadays, the term more often refers to semen and the ejaculation thereof. The aforementioned trope has mostly dropped the term as a result in favour of other synonyms.

** This may have been deliberately invoked in ''Manga/HunterXHunter'', which actually has a character named Baise. Her power is to invoke intense sexual desire of any type she likes in any man by kissing him.

** "Cock" originally referred to a rooster.

** "Cock" originally referred to a rooster. It still does in some parts of Asia, where the word "rooster" is rare or unheard of, leading to confusion on both sides.

Even very slight changes in usage can produce this effect; until recently, a man might speak of his attraction to a "young girl" and mean a twentysomething. Nowadays she'd be young, or a girl, [[PaedoHunt but not both]]. And sometimes the expression ''still'' has an innocent meaning that is at least as valid as the naughty one, but now [[FreudWasRight there are just too many people with their minds in the gutter]].

* "Boob" or "booby" meant a fool or silly person before it meant a woman's breast, and is still used that way in the phrase "booby trap" (i.e. [[SchmuckBait a trap a gullible or stupid person would fall into]]) but almost never by itself, unless referring to [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Booby a kind of seabird]].

Added DiffLines:

* Not extremely awkward, but before "cool" became a synonym for "hip", it meant cold. Confusion easily arises when, in older literature, a character who ''anything but'' is described as "cool" (when the writer meant to use it in a similar metaphorical sense as that assigned to "cold").

Added DiffLines:

* Other languages, German: A "Dirne" was simply a girl (and still is in dialect: cf. "Deern" and "Dirndl"). Nowadays it means a prostitute, but the word is so obsolete that it is only used semi-poetically even for that. "Wichsen" meant to apply shoe cream, but transfer by analogy [[ADateWithRosiePalms shifted the standard meaning completely.]] "Geil" went ping-pong. A biological term first ("wild") the meaning turned first into "horny" and by overuse it now rather means "cool, groovy" or something like that.

Added DiffLines:

* In medical usage, a "thrill" means a pulse that can be detected with the fingertips, and "to feel for a thrill" thus means to search for the patient's pulse. This can lead to unfortunate double meanings depending on which part of the body the doctor is searching for a pulse, especially if it's a male doctor and a female patient.
