Default Your Favorite Words


Can anyone think of great sounding words? I like cool sounding transitive verbs such as 'utilize' and 'achieve.' I also like great sounding nouns like 'apparatus' and 'gossamer.' After you choose your words, feel free to use them in a sentence!

"If he had looked at himself in the toothpaste-spotted mirror over the basin, he would have seen shiny strings of spittle, as gossamer as strands of spiderweb, gleaming between his tongue and the roof of his mouth." - Stephen King, The Moving Finger

Oh, this is hard...um, I really like aigoo, the korean word for "darn." But in english, I don't really know. "Ascertain" is pretty fun.

I second aigoo. My wife is a K-drama junky and says it all the time now. I love when they say it softly, casually, more an affect than an actual statement.

This is not my favorite word. But it's the one I use most often.

My favorite word is "like," because you can use it in like every sentence.

My favorite word is hiraeth. It's a Welsh word and it can't be exactly translated. Hiraeth is a homesickness for a place that doesn't exist. I never got a chance to use this word in my writing but I can't wait for a moment when I will do it.

I love the silent letter in the word "paradigm".

It means a perfect example of something-

I like the way Russian words sound - perestroika, nostarovia. And even the most basic stuff sounds good in Spanish: nosotros comemos manzanas y naranjas. Come to think of it, I like heaps of foreign words. Maybe they're just unfamiliar and therefore exotic? The Germans have some awesome words for whole concepts -
