ummmm, glum, isn't that a great word?

Glum.

That is a fantastic word.

It is funny sounding and onomatopoeic.

I hate the word rural, probably because I find it hard to say.

I also like resorcinol...a kind of glue, which is also hard to say, kind of like aerobics for the tongue, but somehow I like that word...

I also like made up words like youngests' ovideous. It is very very bad if you get called that.

Then there are the semi-made up ones like galumphs, or glopulets...

Seems I like gl combos...I don't like y's at the ends of words though.

What's your favourite word, and why?

glum makes me think of... "my precioussssss". erm. Sorry 'bout that :D.

A favorite word? I don't think I have any. I like them all :)

My mind has gone blank. I know I have lots of favourite words but being asked has scattered them from my brain. I can only come up with a (goofy) term of endearment we use around here - "glink-knob."
(I don't think it's rude...)

Omniscient, crustacean, livid, splendid, dazzle. I could go on forever. My favorite city name is Tallapoosa (in Missouri). It makes me giggle. Oh, giggle..there's another one.

elPadawan, how kind of you. There are definately words I DON't like.

Boo and Trev, I have to go look up escutcheon now....

Beth, there is nothing like being asked directly for things to disappear...goofy terms of endearment are always fun though!

Hula, what a great list...crustacean...yup...dazzle...with you, there are some fantastic canadian place names too....giggle!

Kim S and I have been friends for many years, and we were roommates for a couple years in college. She had an affinity for the words beaker and broccoli. Consequently, I have also come to enjoy those words and thing they make great names for inanimate objects.

Dawn, I have to agree about beaker...it is a great name, was it the Muppets or Sesame Street that had a beaker, I think the Muppets, clearly Jim Henson agreed with your asessment.
