pell-mell

pell-mell: adv. In a jumbled, confused manner; helter-skelter.

I discovered the word pell-mell recently when rereading a book by Betty Neels, I had never heard of the word before and immediately looked it up. I always love discovering old-fashioned words in older books, for example I'm also always very happy to discover the word gay in its native meaning.
