I think Ed we are back to the difference between English English and American (USA) English, many of us here understand or know of these words but then we read words from USA writers that we have no idea about!
Prior to the Internet I would have said you need to invest in a copy of the Shorter Oxford English Dictionary (SOED), but now it is On-line and would easily answer your question about 'Duffer' etc.
