What's one really cool word for today? Part deuce.

Asked by ibstubro (11028 points ) January 12th, 2014

I’ll start:

Highfalutin

Common, simple, fun to say.
Sort of put you to mind of the “Beverly Hillbillies”.

Schnitzel

German for kind of noodle and it tickles my tongue to say it.
[schnitzelschnitzelschnitzel]

ibstubro's avatar

Thanks, @VS, for being #1 to part 2!

It is a fun word. Could easily be a dog. (schnauzer )

ragingloli's avatar

@VS
A Schnitzel is a fried thin piece of meat with a breadcrumb coating.
What you might have had in mind is “Spätzle”.

@ragingloli thank you for that lesson, but schnitzel is just so much more fun to say than spatzle! :D

Coloma's avatar

Deuce!

Seek's avatar

But Spätzle has an umlaut. And umlauts are awesome.

My word is “Umlaut”. Because, umlaut.

hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia: an even longer word for the fear of long words
@Smitha I’ve been dying to use that word in a legitimate sentence.

ETpro's avatar

@dxs It’s actually hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia. Just saying.

dxs's avatar

Actually, @ETpro, it isn’t.
You are confusing hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia with hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia. Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia is a word that I made up. It has the exact same meaning as hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia, but hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia is just coincidentally one p longer than hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia, so that may be why you think I am mistaking hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia with hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia. Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia, though less common, is my alternative to the synonym hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia. I wish you well.

Skambein. Which is Norwegian for pubic bone (literally shame-bone). It always pops out at me when I’m paging through my Norwegian-English dictionary. I like how somehow when you spend any sort of time with a dictionary you get familiar with certain entries just because you always seem to be flipping past them. I seem to see sneglesnart (snailspeed) an awful lot too.
