    ................................................

    What are your favorite words to say, not based soley on meaning or anything, you just like the way the words feel coming out of your mouth?
    I thought of asking this because everytime I say brunch or grasshopper, I just smile even if I wasn't happy prior to. Sometimes I'll go out of my way just to say my favorite words. Oh gosh, I just said "Grasshopper Brunch", and I hurt my head I smiled so hard.

    Some of my favorite words to say are:

    brunch.....pentecostal.......Abraham

    munch.....conundrum.......stapler

    lunch.......sharp.........benediction

    venerable.....source.......Magna Carta

    grasshopper

    I've got a few that always make me smile:

    superfluous

    rubble or rable

    cantankerous

    wiffle ball (although lately we've taken to saying "Let's go wiffle")


    Every once in a while, I'll also take to repeating a common word so many times that it seems to lose its connection to the meaning and just becomes an odd sound. For some reason, I did this to "doctor" yesterday, and after a while I was entirely too puzzled about how the sound "dock-terr" referred to someone in the medical industry. icon_confused.gif

    Phenomenal. I describe things that are not quite phenomenal as phenomenal just so I can say the word phenomenal.

    Particularly enamored with:

    particularly

    and sometimes get a brain cramp over short four words like 'with' or 'then' - I don't know why, my brain just sort of locks up thinking about the word. Usually I can re-boot icon_smile.gif

    1. Bears.
    2. Beats.
    3. Battlestar Galactica.

    ... no, but really, I enjoy the following words:

    vituperative, commiserate, hajimemashite, inculcate, circumlocution, epsilon, ambient/ambience, enumerate, sordid, quid pro quo, de facto, miscegenation, Thames, demure, vicissitude, ... etc.

    it depends on the day and my mood as well.

    I gravitate strongly towards internal rhyme and high syllabic complexity in English and other languages with repetitive phonetic constructions, so I find myself listening to world news on NPR and paying special attention to stories from Russia and eastern Europe. (Anyone who recognizes the term glossolalia will know where I'm coming from.)

    I have always expected that neurolinguists will one day discover a mechanism in our brains whereby each language has an optimum arrangement of meter, stress, assonance, consonance, and so on, that causes a highly pleasurable electrochemical resonance. And I further suspect that when this mechanism is understood, they will discover that in our linguistic firmware, the optimum arrangement of the phonemes of the English language that will produce such a pleasurable resonance is, in fact, iambic pentameter.


    ...and right there, already, were a few of my favorites.

    mechanism       iambic pentameter         electrochemical
    phonemes     optimum

          slumber      scurrilous    schopenhauer
    indomitable
          obligatory
    recidivism

    phospholipid
          drosophila melanogaster
    martina navratilova
                   svetlana boginskaya
       kilimanjaro


    EXOSKELETAL
    (This has been one of my absolute favorites ever since I mis-heard Kurt Cobain rasp it out on In Utero. Not only does it have great internal consonance in both the "exoske" and the "letal" portions, but I once had the extraordinary realization that because of the consonance, each of those parts is, in common pronunciation, its own phonetic palindrome -- "x" is pronounced like "ks" and the final "e" and "a" both become a flat schwa, so substituting, we get "eksoske" and "luhtuhl". Awesome!)

    Meso-American words are also great. There's something compelling about the letter "l" at the end of a word.
    Chapultepec
    quetzalcoatl
    axolotl

    Well I've had quite a number over the years.... some designed to frustrate and irritate friends of mine... LOL.

    One of my favorite phases at the moment is: "You there" when I call or message someone.

    Words like "interesting" or "intriguing" have always been used.

    When I was in college, I went through a number of words or phrases...

    "How Quaint" drove my cousin crazy...

    When I was a senior in college, I used to say the following phrase to my fraternity bros, fellow staff on our university newspaper (for which I was the editor) and others....

    "Is this PH approved"? or "Is this Phoebe Hudson endorsed"?

    I said it so much, one of my fraternity brothers used to threaten me when I
    said it. I remember there was a demand as I graduated ...as to who this "Phoebe Hudson" was..... I explained I went to first and second grade with the girl.

    Lately, I've been enjoying lucre (filthy), quotidian, envirobabble, and equalmente.

    And a radio code phrase that some friends brought back from the first gulf war: "What the fuck... over."
