What’s Your Favorite Word?

Following my recent post about annoying words, I thought I’d change it up for this Monday Question.

Instead of a question about books, let’s talk about words. We’ve all talked about words we hate, but what are some words you love?

A few years ago, I wrote a post about beautiful words—and I still love those words.

Words like epiphany and fizzle—aren’t they beautiful? Aren’t they intoxicating to hear? Don’t they just flow off the tongue like a spoonful of honey?

Well, that’s a little overly dramatic, but you get the point. I do love those words.

So what about you—what’s your favorite word(s)?

  7. Defenestrate – to throw out the window is in the definition.
    Spoilers – in my best River Song voice.
    Inconceivable! – i do not think that word means what you think it means.

  13. This is so random but I remember reading an interview with Margaret Atwood where she was asked about her favorite word and her answer was: “And. It is so hopeful.”
