When I was young (around 6 or 7 years old) I thought that "Seldom" was a swear word.

All because of a record that was free with Weatabix.

It was a record of Western songs - "She'll be comin' 'round the mountain" and that sort of thing.

One song was "Home on the range"

Where a lyric is "Where seldom is heard a discouraging word"

I asked my mother what "discouraging" meant - and, having been asked out of context, she tried to explain what it meant.

So I thought the song was saying that out on the range they discouraged people to use the word "Seldom" - I assumed because it was a 'rude' word - like 'bloody' etc.

I was astonished whenever people used the word from then on "It seldom rains in the desert" was one that springs to mind!

Don't know what prompted the memory - but thought I would share as I'm having a remarkably frustrating day and am using any excuse to procrastinate.
