Good point, Phil, 
 
Such a judgment can kill a word. There is also the possibility of
resurrecting or rejuvenating a word labelled
"archaic." Who can hinder creative speakers from doing so?

thanks Filip, Jimm, I was also hoping to know who was making the judgement
of a term being 'archaic' - the lexicographer or the speaker consultant(s)
or speech community.

I use "old" for those terms that may be heard from and used by a few 
persons, but are not the usual word or pronunciation of a word that is 
current.

<no longer used or known by present day speakers> Well, perhaps <no longer
used> would suffice. Forms such as 'thou art' or 'thou shalt' are no longer
used but are surely understood by educated speakers. It would be interesting
to have a closer look at such labels as 'old', 'old use', 'archaic',
'obsolescent' or 'obsolete' as the the distinctions between them are not
clear-cut.
