Your Favorite Word

Recommended Posts

I know this is nerdy and all but I think it's really interesting to learn about people's favorite words! It's a great way to build one's vocabulary, too! So how about I start:

My favorite word is loquacious.

Epitome. Mainly because me and my friends have been using it in Norwegian essays even though our teacher claims it's not a Norwegian word (Most complicated words are exactly the same in Norwegian and English). She corrects it every time.

Apocalypse

Caustic

Cynical

Epicaricacy/Schadenfreude (they mean the same thing; the latter is German, but is commonly used in English anyhow)

Lethologica

Lackadaisical

Verbose. And elaboration, which was my favourite word since like 3rd grade. :panic: Both suit me cause I overwrite ridiculously. Haha

Do you all have favourite words that you use more in certain contexts? For example, I tend to use "brilliant" the most to describe things I like when speaking.

Today in Biology I learned the word 'jejunum' which is pretty fun to say. the jejunum is the middle part of the small intestine :panic:
