my alltime favourite is "euthymic" because I didn't know what it meant when I saw it written down and it wasn't in a few dictionaries . i used to use it as a password online lol.
Anyway,it means normal mood in medical phraseology
My favorite word has always been "integrity" - both for its meaning and it's sound and look. I like that has four syllables. That makes it kind of "dance-y". The "in" is pretty sounding to me. The "ty" is kind of light. The second syllable is strong and solid - like the definition. It has lots of different types of sounds. It's just kind of a says-it-all/is-it-all kind of word that also has quiet power. I probably don't particularly like the "grit" part but the "teg" part makes up for it.
Mine is 'cathedral.' Just a pretty word and onomatopoetic when it doesn't mean to be.
"Cathedral" IS pretty. It needs a pretty song built around it (and not a religious song and not "Winchester Cathedral either . Good word to build a poem around too.
It's in one of the stanzas of Dan Fogelberg's "Longer."
"Stronger than any mountain cathedral
Truer than any tree ever grew
Deeper than any forest primeval
I am in love with you"
Granted, the entire song isn't built around it, but it's one of my favorite uses of the word.
Serendipity. Discovering beautiful things by chance. What could be better than that. It is such a hopeful and inspiring word. Apologies to those of a more literary persuasion but I love the sillyness of the sound.
Depending on the situation, it is either "Yes" or "No".
Well, sir. Did I get the job?
Well, doc. Do I have cancer?
Also unintentionally onomotopoetic. And simply poetic.
I've always liked the word "probably". The 'b' and 'e' sounds are fun. I had a teacher who was a real stickler on having us pronounce it correctly. So many want to say "prolly" or "prob-ly'.
serenity, it flows and the way it flows matches its meaning.

Apparently the correct word for 'having a senior moment' and having the inability to remember the right word is, in fact, lethological. Does this make it the most forgotten word in the English Language because if I can't remember the word I'm looking for, I certainly can't remember the word...
