There are some words that are just fun to say. They have a good “mouth feel”, like the sensation you get when you bite into a taco or a handful of peanuts. Regardless of their meanings, they just plain feel good to say.
Effluvium. Fallopian. Crennelation. Ooh, that was fun! Vituperousness. Assclown. Squint. Squirt. Machicolation. Whoopee!
What are your favorites?
Egregious. Mastication. Felonious. Thespian.
Do stolen French words count?
I love all the words that end in -ate I once compiled a list of all the ones I could think of. I had a few pages before I decided to get a life.
Bloviate. Especially in these windy political times.
Just about anything in Yiddish is a good word. “Farkakte” ranks very high among my all-time favorite human creations.
Egregious (mentioned already, but i like it)
Good mouthfeel on that one, I’d say! :eek:
All of the aforementioned words are very cromulent and they embiggen us all!
I like “limpid” and “lugubrious”, if for no other reason than they do naht mean whachoo thik they mean.
Oh yeah. As well as being both the ultimate insult and the ultimate “sex me up” word.
Those 7 syllables just roll off the tongue!
I always had a deep fondness for words ending in -uous:
The more you look at 'em, the weirder they seem.
Although my current favorite word is ‘fuliginous’.
*Gonorrhea * is far to pretty a word to be such a nasty thing.
