Of all words in the English language, which is your favorite, and why?
“Yes” – This word is the answer that elicits the most positive of all responses from all ages in response to most questions. It sends joy to the spirit of the one receiving the answer and the sender because of the smile they see.
Honor - it's the way I try and live life, and something I respect intensely. It's something that is sadly missing from life these days.
I've always favored the word "malleable." Partially because I like how it rolls off the tongue, and partially because I think malleability (or adaptability) is the mark of an intelligent mind... Yep.
My favourite English word is "Happy". Why? Find out on my hub on linguistic discoveries:
Incredible. This word conveys a sense of high energy, wonder, and imagination. Growing up in the era of space exploration and the original Star Trek , this word has always been special to me. I am always seeking to find the extraordinary!
Love. Simply stated, to me it is the word with the most emotion behind it, when truly spoken. It is also a beautiful word in every language...
Defenestration. Not only does it sound hilarious, it means "the act of throwing someone or something out a window". I learned it in a high school Spanish class when my teacher used its Spanish cognate "defenestratar". Look up the article on wikipedia about the Great Defenestration of Prague. What a brilliant way to for citizens to show their discontent.

Its sound reflects its meaning quite beautifully--and its meaning encompasses everything that's truly ours.
mindbogglingly- I first came across it in Douglas Adams' famous Hitchhiker's series, and ever since I'm mad about it:D
"Awesome" because it's just so...eh, awesome! Granted the usage of the word has altered a great deal, but language is not a static thing, it constantly develops and evolves. I don't know why but I just seem to say the word a lot, therefore I think it is a great word, and don't know what I'd do without it =p
