This week’s obscure English word is comportment. With an o, not an a. It’s related to ‘deportment’ and derives from old French, and it refers to the way people move, implicitly indicating they have higher social status.
It is, of course, obsolete in modern times, but comporting oneself properly – thus revealing superior social status – was apparently very important a century or more ago.
Your challenge: write a sentence or two in the comments using this word.
