Would that be learning New Chaucerian?** or learning Chaucerian words that are new?
but can one really say any Chaucerian words are "new"? Most of them are at least 600 years old, and given the changes that English has undergone, that is not very "new".
Or possibly might you mean learning Chaucerian words that are not in one's own vocabulary?
**as spoken by the Residents of New Chaucer?
