Favourite words was created by Edan
Just something silly for the weekend and inspired by another thread..

What are you favourite words? (Especially ones you like saying :) )

One of mine is paradise said in a German accent (don't ask!)
and another is 'cosmology'

Anyone else?

We have a rule against some of my favourite words ... :ohmy:

Now, seriously. :lol:

I like them all ... sort of.

A grocery list can be poetic if one is hurting or in Love. :blush: :( :huh: :ohmy: :unsure: :cheer: :woohoo: :pinch: :angry: :P :cheer: :huh: :dry: :( :whistle:

It isn't the words themselves - that is why we argue over "definitions" ...

... it is the way we put them together, the way they sound when said, read or sung by different voices. It is their flexibility and, more than what 'they' mean, how we can shape them to express what WE mean. And what forms they take and what forms they shouldn't take (you know, how you don't "break up" with someone over the e-mail).

Words are limited. Our creativity with them .... well, it probably is too, but we haven't gotten there yet. ;)

One day maybe. ;)

^_^ Everyone has their talent. I ask because of your theory on words. While I agree I feel that words themselves can give voice to them, tones, emotions, and all those subtle things attached them. But that requires an ability to tell stories :)

"Beautiful Flower"

yay Words XD

Luminous, melody, zephyr, epiphany and tuna. Just because you can tune a piano that doesn't mean you can tuna fish.

And of course
