      Oh epi, I am a word person, lover, meister...how can there only be one favorite?   Favorite to read?   To hear?   to write?   To use?  To ponder?
      I am an emotional wreck just thinking about your question.     sad      Ok, Ok.

      Reading --- mellifluous
      Hearing ---  etymological
      Writing --- correlation
      Using ---  penultimate
      Pondering --- tatterdemalion
      Singing --- omnipotent

      I know, I know.....I broke your rule, but it was that or have a mental breakdown.   And if answering the question tomorrow I would select another :"different" set of six words.   I simply cannot help myself.   smile

      Hi Colin;

      Well, with the exception of "love," I would have to say, "possibilities." 

      Interesting queston.

        I also love glacial - to describe a tone, an attitude, or a stare.  It is so apt and brings such an automatic image that it's hard to choose a better word when referring to something/someone's cold nature.

    I'm also a fan of discombobulated, and I get to use it often as a description of myself on Monday mornings....but since it has been said already, I'll go with:
    Plethora

    Need me to say it again and again? Plethora!

    1. phdast7 profile image82
      phdast7posted 5 years agoin reply to this

      plethora is a wonderful word.  Ever see the film The Three Amigos with Steve Martin.   It contains a plethora of laughs and the word plethora.   :0

      In the film, plethora is used by a "nefarious" schemer.
