What are your favorite words (in any language)?

Recommended Posts

What are your favorite words (in any language)? If you list your words, but you remembered another word that you didn't list, always remember that there's nothing wrong with posting here again (or editing your original post). Also, there's no limit as to what you can put here. If your favorite word is vulgar and you'd still like to share it, I won't judge you. This will be a judgment-free zone to share words that tickle your fancy.

 

My favorite words that currently come to mind are "steadfast", "bereft", "Jerusalem", "Salem", and "impending".

In English discombobulated and anthropoid- but there are always interesting words. Oh and also simulacrum.

The word "remember" is only said twice throughout this song, but both times, it is so distinct and beautiful-sounding. I think you'll like it.

That was a lovely song! You were right about "remember" being distinct and beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing that!

I forgot about that. I love the word. Very ironic

Dutch: eekhoorn (= squirrel), English: cauldron, French: noir (this is very unoriginal), langoureuse (= languishing, languid), German: Nebel (= fog, nebula), Greek: ψυχή (psyche, but I like that in Greek it's a four letter word), Russian: мир (= peace, world),

French: blanc. I dunno why, I just liked how it sounded when I was younger.

English: Dociousaliexpisticfragicalirupus (Can't even say it though, it's supercalifragilisticexpialidocious backwards though! Not spelt that way, but you get the idea.)
