I'll name 3 that I absolutely love: Gimcrack (n.)-A cheap, tasteless and showy thing, usually ornamental. Lobscouse (n.)-A meat and vegetable stew enjoyed thoroughly by sailors. Crinkum-crankum (n.)-Something consisting of elaborate twists and turns-often refers to fanciful penmanship.
But don't you think that the F. word has become overdone to the point of meaninglessness? It's so tiresome to hear it over and over.
I keep thinking that the English language has almost half million words (I think that was the number I read). You can't come up with anything better than that? Not "you" personally but more generally in popular culture.
Is the word that good or does it just reflect a lack of imagination and education?
What's your favorite word to use in conversation?Strange though it may be, I have a few semi-obscure words that I'm in the habit of using in conversation. Anyone else have this going on? Any favorite words?My two favorites are probably copacetic and inimitable.
Personally I prefer strong words, those that convey extreme emotion or action, as well as words that have interesting sounds when spoken aloud. Anyway, the reason I'm posting this is curiosity - I've decided to do a sort of "my favorite words" post on my website, with dictionary.com...
