my son was just telling me yesterday he likes the sound and feel of the word 'guzzle'
swan swam over the sea,swan swam swum.(just free-associating here - something we chanted at primary school).
This is my favorite part of these silly posts -- getting better words back, in the comments area. MInx _ Ah, you have some good ones there. I have always loved "bum" especially as an American. And how could anyone not like "quiver"? That "Q" sound is usually a safe bet for fun.lime _ Little Lime is on it. Great word!Signs _ Free associate anytime you wish, please. You are golden.
Great list, I think they are getting better. There are some favorites on here! I love vivacious. Oh yes.Also, I loveexquisitemyriadendeavorbeholdexcellentcountenancepersuadebelovedand especially hulla-ballo. Although I'm not sure if I spelled it correctly, and Merriam-Webster isn't talking.Minx?Scarlett & Viaggiatore
Scarlett _ Oh thank you for such wonderful additions. "Endeavor" always sounds so secret and wonderful. And "beloved" yes, that one is one of my favs.Sharon _ Very nice.

Effluvium is splendid!S & V
I've always had a fondness for the French word for Grapefruit - Pamplemousse.Being from Canada all packaging is bilingual.
What, Scarlett?Oh, I see.....'hullaballoo' according to the OED.There is a site for favourite words, it appears others have this passionhttp://www.myfavoriteword.com/H.html
Jon M _ I have come to learn that my everyday vocabulary is much smaller than many, many others. "Osculate" is my fav here. Very nice collection, thank you.Scarlett & V_ yes, yes, indeed.Chris _ There are some really wonderful non-English words, that as an English speaking person, sound so wonderful bouncing around in our mouths. Minx _ I will check out the link. Thank you, kind and thoughtful Minx.
Hullaballoo. Got it. Minx, thank you ever and ever so much.Mr. GoodThomas, will you be starting lists of foreign words that you like? Or would you blend them? A collage of wonderful words of the world?or snigglets... those are fun.Scarlett & Viaggiatore
Scarlett _ Since I don't really speak a foreign language enough to recognize "everyday words," I am afraid I may come up a little short. I know there are some wonderful German words, and French lends itself to some great words, as well. Two of my favorite Italian words are "bicicletta" (bicycle) and "francobollo" (postage stamp). But the world is a big place, filled with some wonderful wonderful words. I bet there are some great Swahili words. . .
My favorite word in Swahili is Malaika, it means Angel....there is one lion left waiting for a good home... *Big smiles* OK, I can see bicycle in bicicletta, but I just can't figure out francobollo/postage stamp, and studying the etymology of words is something I very much enjoy doing, so I'll have to work on that one.Scarlett & Viaggiatore
effervescenceeternitypsychomantiumrelinquishthaumatropeare some words that fill my mouth and my mind..."...not sure if his day, his each day, is recycled from his life, or someone else's." I was moved by this phrase a lot.Fate will reach you anywhere you are.And I've started reading your novella. Are you working on the second half?
Chortle is real shiny
Scarlett _ And you know some Swahili!! Goodness. Now, I think you would do these kinds of list very well. Take it, run with it. Vesper _ Ohhhh, I like "relinquish" Every common word but look at the "quish" part - and it sounds so fun to say. Thank you.Thank for your kinds words regarding 5:30am. Fate is an amazing thing. And thank you for reading the novella. Yes, I am working on the second half. I am past my goal of being done by May 1st but I am pleased with what I have thus far.L.M. _ "Chortle" is highly under-rated. Your comment was real shiny as well. Thank you .
My favorite would be appetizer. It doesn't only sound good, it also tastes good...
I really like the word dirigible at the moment.My fave mexican word was ... OK don't know how to spell it but phonetically it was WAHcaLah and you had to look disgusted when you said it and really emphasise the WAH.The hybrid oaf monkey was brisk to chortle at the aloof mucker of a swan.
Oooooh difficult one. Think I'll go for 'oaf' this time .... nooooo not sure. None of these words are tickling me ....Hmmmmmm.Hi! I'm back. Did you miss me?;-)x
