    Cool words

    A friend of mine and myself were talking about absolutely nothing one day, and we got on the subject of words that we like. For no particular reason other than the fact that we like to say them. We don't necessarily use them a lot, but when we do, we enjoy it.

    Here are some of my favourite words:

    Basking
    Loft
    Perchance
    Waddle
    Forsooth
    Tortilla
    Martini

    Anybody else have any words they like? Or are my friend and I just on crack?

    Gee, there are a lot of words that are fun to say. Of course all words dealing with sexual acts are usually fun to say (I like the French ones the best). There's also:
    • vernacular (as alredy stated)
    • epidermis
    • triangulate
    • nebulas
    • turtle
    • incompetence
    • vegetative
    • anemone
    • emu (I like other Austrian animal names, too)
    • flabbergast
    • academia
    • anaconda
    • Ian Glass
    Ever notice how may of the best words are a derivative (oh, that's another one) of Latin?
