What shrubbery said.

Then again, if you don’t restrict it to the English language, I’d say… Hmm, let me think… Well, off the top of my head, I’d say “draaideur” as just one word I like. I don’t really have a favourite though.

rumble. It rolls off the tongue well and sounds cool when it’s repeated. Go ahead, try it.

the state of being infatuated or obsessed with another person, typically involuntary, and characterized by a strong desire for reciprocation of one’s feelings but not primarily for a sexual relationship.

Or, as I describe it, the butterflies in the beginning of a relationship.

@ Scamp – Would you say you had a plethora of piñatas? because I wouldn’t want someone telling me they had a plethora of piñatas if they did not no what a plethora was.

(umlaut) I cannot possibly pick out one word. I love them all. When my kids were young teens and grumpy, and I wanted to take a picture, I used to pick words that they weren’t expecting. For example, I’d say, “Say penis.” That did it.

Their favorite word for a while was *limacine.”

@Tupara: I would use *callipygian.”

My favorite group of words are “Your mammogram came back fine.”

My least favorite words are definitely, suck and platypus.

@gailcalled – you just made me laugh, how childish of me :P

gailcalled's avatar

@Vincent; that is one of my roles here- the court jester. It gives me pleasure (and is very good for your immune system, too.) I find that the unpredictable answer usually works better than the opposite. Sometimes, I can guess what’s coming from the user name alone.

Bri_L's avatar

I learned 3 new spellings and 2 new words from gail who has single handedly raised my vocab as well as the accuracy by her kind and forgiving ways! YES!

Indubitably, although I invariably have a hard time saying it.
Mnemonic, because I love the secret M.
Massage, for the soft g sound. It buzzes nicely.

Apostrophe – a lot of letters for a diminutive mark.

Not for what the word represents, though babies are lovely. I just like the look and sound of it.
