On the weekends, it only seems appropriate to feature some of the more interesting of the legal words. I can assure you there are many. These are words that are no longer in use in the English language (or, in some cases, never were), or words that are only used in contracts. Most of these words are even being phased out of use in contracts.

“This for that”
An action or thing that is exchanged for another action or thing of more or less equal value.
Every business transaction involves an exchange of things. Contrary to popular belief, the two things do not necessarily have to be of equal value. Most often, money is exchanged for goods or services. The exchange could also be something more subtle like an exchange of your email address for a free download.
