Words, Words, Words!

Another random, hopefully-fun, blog post. This is actually an idea stolen from Robert and his quest to read those 101 books; however, in an attempt to be more positive, I decided to create a list of words I love. These are not necessarily your every-day words; and yet, that may be part of the reason why I love them. Many of these are “special occasion” words–I only wish I could use them all on an every-day basis.

  • Ambiguous
  • Ballyhoo
  • Belladonna
  • Bliss
  • Brouhaha
  • Cacophony
  • Chai
  • Euphoria
  • Harlequin
  • Lascivious
  • Luxurious
  • Mellifluous
  • Meshuggeneh
  • Nefarious
  • Odious
  • Paradigm
  • Plethora
  • Prosaic
  • Pusillanimous
  • Rambunctious
  • Row (as in “we had a frightful row in the boudoir.”)
  • Saccharine
  • Sassafras
  • Supercilious
  • Syzygy
  • Troglodyte
  • Vapid
  • Vivid
  • Voracious
