Not for the meanings. They are just fun to say.

jrpowell's avatar

Interesting.. Of the two people that posted multiple words they both end the same.

Niki likes words that end in “ion” and I like words that end with a “y”. I think that is interesting.

Sinister – just like the way it sounds.

Redundant. It was the first “big” word I can remember learning, and I still love it

@jenni, serendipity is a word for a fortunate accident?

Lighten up brownlemur. The last one was 896 questions ago. A lot of new people have joined since then. And it isn’t like people dig through old questions like these to post an answer.

How do I jailbreak my iPhone is a question you should run a search on. This is not.

Please research questions to see if they have already been asked before you ask them.

wildflower's avatar

I wonder…..when are people going to start complaining about repetitive answers, not just questions…

jstringham21's avatar

@johnpowell

Actually, that question turned out less results than this one.

It is a tie between defenestrate and svelte.

Schenectandy's avatar

For some reason, I really like the word “about”.

And any word that ends in ”-age”, because you can say it like a surfer.

marinelife's avatar

@MacBean Great list. A lot of those are favorites of mine too.

MacBean's avatar

@Marina A lot of them are just so much fun to say! :D

marinelife's avatar

I just saw a new avatar on a post that reminded me that one of my favorite words is akimbo. Bravo to steveakimbo for the reminder.
