What's Your Favorite Word?

We're all word people right? So which is your favorite word in the whole wide language? Surely you have one.

Mine is archipelago.

Take it away, word people!

For sheer strength and shock value and onomatopoetic resonance, if not meaning - RAPE!

I love that all-time f-word, but I guess that's inappropriate here.

Anonymous said...

I love the word savage. I'm not sure what that says about me but the word gives me tingles.

doreen said...

Wow-I'm starting to see a theme here. (Mine was savage-I just have problems signing in). What does it say about us that our favorite words are related to sex and violence??

MYWifeMadeMeWriteIt said...

Uxorious

Jared X said...

Steatopygous.

It means "of or characterized by disproportionately large buttocks." We're not talking about just run-of-the-mill junk in the trunk. It has to be disproportionate to the rest of the body, like the Widettes in original-cast SNL.

I learned the word from a federal judge. In court.

Anonymous said...

I love the word discombobulated. I like the way it sounds and I like the meaning. I think it's quite a useful word as well.

I most admit that I too love the f-word. It's so darn versatile.

Josh said...

Pandemonium is a fun one.

Robena Grant said...

Bereft.

It has shown up in so many novels in the last year or two that it makes me grin every time I see it.
(Kind of like spotting a VW Bug).

I often wonder how many people in real life go around placing back of hand to their brow, saying, "I am bereft."

Anonymous said...

I hate to be unoriginal, but the f word, because, depending on what others words I choose accompany it with, it can be used in a variety of ways, i.e, insultingly, comically, invitingly, engagingly, sarcastically, philosophically and, of course, to suggest the anatomically impossible. Name another word that could possibly be that versatile.

I love concomitantly.

doreen said...

Antidisestablishmentarianism-I'm against it but the word's still cool.

Gloria Weber said...

I really don't have a favorite word... Something must be wrong with me. But for the past 4 months instead of yelling, "Hey!" to get someone' attention I yell, "Oi!" I never use it in writing, however.

But since you want a favorite word... My husband's favorite word is necrotic.

Pierre said...

Just because it actually is a word (seriously, look it up. It means 'scatterbrained')--

FLIBBERTIGIBBET.

TeddyH said...

Just to clarify, Pierre. flibbertigibit" is a noun, not an adjective. It means a scatterbrained person.

JES said...

"Insouciance." Oh, and "languorous"... no, wait -- "limpid"!

An Edward Gorey book features a page in which a writer -- something like "Mr. Earbrass" I think -- is staring wistfully out at sea, thinking of words. It lists a few of them, of which I can remember only one: "desuetude." Always wanted to write a sentence in which I used that word without pretense. It seems to have fallen into disuse.

Jake Seliger said...

My favorite is callipygian, followed closely thereafter by defenestrate.

William Womack said...

This morning, my favorite word is chatter. By this afternoon... who knows?

sex scenes at starbucks said...

There really is no comparison for fuck. (Sorry, I don't do dashes for profanity.) I'm with anonymous: what other word is so versatile? Verb, noun, adjective, adverb, the ever-popular expletive...ok, maybe not as a preposition. It can be a compliment or an insult. It can be sexy or angry. It's truly an amazing word, so simple, so clean, so effective.

CT said...

I have two:

cacophony

lugubrious

pete osborne said...

Favorite word (for today at work): *Calgon*

Chris Redding said...

Gobsmacked.
I sounds like what it means.
cmr

Susan said...

Ampersand. I love the word and wish it was more than just the name of a symbol meaning "and". But Mike Doughty managed to use it in a song, which I think is pretty amazing.

Nikki Hootman said...

Nathan, I can't believe you said archipelago! That's my second favorite word! My first is archetype. I like anything with the "ark" sound.

H. L. Dyer said...

After blogging about Willy Wonka and publishing a couple days ago, I want to pick "Scrumdiddlyuptious"

But I think I'll go with "thick". I like the self-reflection of the word in its sound.

Laurel said...

Moon

I love the way it sounds.

An aside to jake seliger:
Bill Watterson (Calvin and Hobbes) used defenestration in a poem once. It was very funny.

Creative A said...

I have to second cacophony

Next comes globular, svelte, filigree, maverick, kinetic, paradigm, metamorphosis, continuum...

Words are just great.

annenahm said...

I once saw a college class for "guitarchitecture". Like guitars and architecture. I love the way it sounds.

Even now, I'm sometimes tempted at parties to introduce myself as a guitarchitect. If only I had taken even one music class...

dfrucci said...

My favorite word would have to be Savage. It is such a savage word, you can use it for a substitute for any adjective.

Cinnamon.

It sounds nice, and it engages the senses.

Jeanne said...

Quagmire.
It's not a word I use very often, but I love the way it sounds. I'm not sure why, I just do.

Jolie said...

Hi! Longtime lurker, first time commenter.

My favorite word changes every day, it seems, but right now I'm going with "ornery." I was out with a friend last night and he used it in conversation (actually, he said "ornery-ass," which may be even better).

Mel Francis said...

I have two.

1. Interloper it's a great word and I think it should be used more often. I even blogged aobut it the other day. LOL

2. schmegma it has been my favorite word since high school biology. I love the way it sounds and I love the it skeeves people out to no end. yes, I'm sick like that.

Annalee said...

archipelago may be my favorite as well, but it's a toss-up between that and defenestrate.

A Word A Day recently informed me that we have a word in English for "characterized by a well-formed buttocks," though (callipygian, already noted above), which is funny in that toddler sort of way.

My favorite non-word is Frak.

Sue said...

Lyrical

Trée said...

Mastication.

pjd said...

There are simply too many good ones to select just one (or, as others have said, the One changes with mood and circumstance).

The one that came to mind first was astonished.

I'm also fond of the word enchanting and encounter.

I often find myself astonished at the enchanting people I encounter.

And one all y'all may not know well, but I knew the person who coined it originally (sadly, he has passed on): shme
(While googling shme, I encountered the phrase metasyntactic variable, which I think would be a great name for a rock band. Anyone want to start it with me?)

Mel Francis said...

FYI: I'm aware smegma is not spelled with a 'ch' but I can't help myself...that's how it's said, so that's how I like to spell it. ;)

and there.

Annie Binns said...

Unconscionable!

No, not the question. That's my word. And I have to add another vote for the f-word, which goes quite nicely with my word if you're struggling for that middle haiku phrase.

janeyolen said...

My favorite word is a Scottish one: traghairm.

It means to prophesy under a waterfall while wrapped in a bullock's skin.

Damned if I've been able to fit it into either a short story or a conversation.

Jane Yolen

GL said...

perambulate

It just sounds goofy.

Others would be "equivocate" and "esoteric".

discombobulate

Sprizouse said...

By far the most used spoken or written word in the English language is "I"... as in, "I am having trouble thinking of the word I like more than any other word I like."

It's usage more than triples "the" and "and"... so doesn't that mean 'I' is really everybody's favorite but we just don't want to admit it?

Gretchen said...

It's a tie between diaphanous and gossamer.

Scott said...

Kudos to the person who said "zephyr." What a great word.

As for my own, tough choice. I tend to prefer the good, strong, Anglo-Saxon words over those sometimes-musical-but-over-long latinate interlopers.

Doggerybaw is a great word. You just don't hear it enough. But I love it so much I used it for the name of my blog.

Spoon is another great word, and much more useful.

But one of my very favorite words, and the first one that always comes to mind when I'm asked this question, is cloud. In fact, one of my earliest blog entries (http://scottrhoades.com/wordpress/?p=7) was an exploration of that word.

OH.... I'm terrible at favorites, but I do love cattywampus. It just has such a great feel to it.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned a least favorite word.... come on! Two words I hate, not for meaning or anything, just because I dislike the sound of them and the feel in my mouth- moist and girth. *shudder*

Kristi said...

I have a few:

chocolate (I like the spanish pronunciation a bit better--choco-latte) :)

chaos

poop (It's funny looking, funny sounding. Substitute it for 'shit' in your daily expetives and you'll smile a whole lot more...)

Avrinell said...

My favorite word is CHAOS.

vulva

Sam Hranac said...

What great words already collected! I'll add one I've spent a long time rolling around in my mouth... groin.

Wait... that didn't come out right. Okay, let's go with grotto. Like groin, it sounds like a fun place to be.

Pamala Knight said...

Too many to choose just one, but today's favorite is:

Kristin Laughtin said...

For the past year or so, it's been "halcyon". Love the sound, love the root, etc.

Pierre said...

Here is one of the ultimate function words on the planet--

ABLE.

You can use it alone, you can stick it at the end of basically anything you want--

talk-about-able, manageable, eatable, f*ckable, rainable, snowable, sleetable, hailable, deliverable, danceable.

Just a good all-purpose word.

Easy! Lackadaisical has been my all time favorite for forever.

However, I am partial to 'snacktacular'.

peacey said...

1. Ergo

and

*WARNING! ONE OF THE SEVEN WORDS YOU CAN'T USE ON TELEVISION TO FOLLOW!*

2. Fuck

The first may one day be replaced by lascivious, but I so love the second that it will always be at or near the top. (Erm, I so love the word...you know, because it's so powerful and versatile...I mean, I'm not saying that...erm, whatever.)

Pamala Knight said...

Oh I've got another one!

perspicacity

As illustrated by this exchange between Lisa and Homer Simpson:

Lisa - Oh my God, I'm losing my perspicacity!

Pamala Knight said...

@ jordan

BOTH!

That's the beauty of it--it's versatility. I love it when someone is described as a lush or when something is described as lush.

Anonymous said...

My favorite has always been "obsidian" followed closely by "ubiquitous", both because they are beautiful-sounding words.

Rebecca Ramsey said...

I like flabbergasted and discombobulated.
And no I'm not old. I just like those words.

Nic said...

peripatetic!

Katie Alender said...

bliss

Lauren said...

I enjoy using "loquacious" and "lugubrious" whenever I can.

Oh, and also "existential." It's such a pretty-sounding word with a decidedly unlighthearted meaning. I like the juxtaposition of that.

I like the word "juxtaposition," too.

Basically, I love words.

Lisa said...

Deconstructionism

Lupina said...

Natalie, you took my "kerfuffle." So I'll have to go with frisson. And I'm having conniptions (another fave) because I just can't work frisson into my WIP; the tone isn't right.

Kimberly Lynn said...

Discombobulate

Stephen Parrish said...

Stuff is wonderfully versatile. I'm also fond of guttersnipe.

Polenth said...

Tintinnabulation

I've yet to use it in a story though. It's hard to sneak in there.

Chase March said...

My favourite words are "Cool" and Though."

I don't know why but I say them an awful lot. Though creeps into my writing too, even though I know it doesn't necessarily need to be there. It just seems cool to me.

Bija Andrew Wright said...

My favorite big specific word is ultracrepidarian. It means acting on nonexistent expertise, like reviewing a movie you haven't seen, or correcting the pronunciation of a language you don't speak.

My current favorite non-word: "Bluh bluh bluh."

Janet said...

Bourgeois, just for the tactile sensation of it in the mouth.

Tom Burchfield said...

I have many, but one of my favorites is "Pooftah" a word that is truly gay and fluffy (though I'm neither)and very comically evocative of the particular type of theatrical person it describes.

Anonymous said...

Crepuscular - means active at dawn and/or dusk - in twilight.

"Crepuscular shades of night are falling -
It's twilight time..."

Also 'Spastic'.
But not Spastic :

Oh_bother said...

There are two at the top of my list: resistentialism and twee.

Defenestrate, definitely.

RED STICK WRITER said...

I like copacetic, both as a word and as a condition.

I am a raconteur, like the moniker, and enjoy all who fit the description.

I aspire to become a 33° curmudgeon and foster an abundance of kerfuffles in my senior years. In preparation for this quest, I take pattern from Andy Rooney.

I am also an aficionado of cacophony and hope one does not arise out of my failure to follow the rules and choose just one word. If it should, I'll not feel a scintilla of regret.

Michelle Moran said...

Well, my editor seems to think it's the word grinned, but I'd like to argue for loquacious.

I have yet to use that in a novel, however.

Oracle. I just love the mythical origins and it's fun for me to say.

My eleven year old daughter's favorite word is nonplussed. She uses it to make her older brother react because he hates it when she uses words he doesn't know.

A Paperback Writer said...

I agree with Polenth: tintintabulation is a great word.
The only time I've ever seen it used in literature, though, is in Poe's "The Bells."
My favorite word in Spanish is "Trabajaba" (s/he used to work) because it's just so dang fun to say.....

Tia said...

Whimsical. It's fun to say and to read!

cc said...

Sam Hranac, you crack me up!


My favorite: delicate


(who knew so many people liked discombobulated?)

gwen said...

"Clandestine", and "mendacious". Actually, since I began studying Latin, any words that are rare in English, but have Latin roots, I tend to love. "Mendacious" comes from "mendax, mendacis", meaning "lie".

There's a lot of fun to be had with a Latin/English dictionary.

Wanda B. Ontheshelves said...

Okay, do phrases count?

Just saw Bernacke testifying before Congress yesterday about banks, price of gas, etc. - so good - "must-watch TV" - the phrase is "consolidated supervision."

As in: There is a need for consolidated supervision of banks. I mean, everything old is new again, right? Parents have to be on the same page in disciplining their children, i.e., consolidate their supervision - and same thing goes for banks.

Yes, I guess there are aspects of "wonkspeak" that I just love. "Moral hazard" is another one. Also "unintended consequences."

I second Fiticuffs!
Also have a soft spot for Smeg (ok technically not a real word but used often enough to be one).

Also, being an Aussie I have to say thong and fanny, just for the multiple meanings & confusion they cause.

My husbands favourite word is Titlate.

There are some "words" that make me angry though:
"Chillax" (Cross between chill and relax)
"Possimistic" (It's OPTImistic people!)
Sorry, I will go back to my corner know, just had to get those off my chest I get so frustrated whenever I hear them.

Kara said...

Well, I am not as original as I thought. I am a teacher so I love to freak the kids out and give them Antidisestablishmentarianism on a spelling test.
I also love to teach them to use discombobulated. When people walk by we sound extra smart.
I think my favorite word though is a toss up between moist and seductive.
Moist because my friend Leigh HATES it and I started saying just to mess with her.
Seductive for obvious reasons.
Filmy is another fave.
Lately though I've had to say frik instead of the f-word because I'd lose my job, so that's become a common word as well.

It's what I call a sticky word - it just sort of sticks in your brain. But I'm also a fan of Dynamic and Disingenuous.

I'm impressed that others would choose defenestrate. That has long been my favorite word. It tickles me that someone would have a need to invent that word.

So now I'll up the ante by posting my favorite two word expression. "Mau mau" as used in the Tom Wolfe classic Radical Chic And Mau Mauing The Flack Catchers.

Deborah Blake said...

What fun! So many great words.

Mine is foible. Say it five times fast: foible, foible, foible, foible, foible. What can I say: wordplay is one of my foibles.

And for Gwen, who shares my love for words with Latin roots...
pulchritude. I remember my senior year of High School (well, barely) when I was in my 3rd year of Spanish and my first year of Latin and came across this word in both languages and English, too. I think that may have been the start of my love affair with words.

Scott Jones said...

I'll try "penecontemporaneous". It's a geological word, meaning "at the same time, plus or minus 10,000 years." Now that is a time frame that puts human life spans in context.

By the way, I've long maintained that the best way to get a masters in Geology is to invent a word and force it into the literature. PhDs are where you rise above mediocrity and begin to create real concept.

Genevieve said...

Without a doubt: phantasmagoria.

First saw it in Henry Murger's Bohemians of the Latin Quarter. The only other time I have ever seen it in literature is in Salman Rushdie'e Midnight's Children.

Personally, I try to use it as much as possible myself.

Wanda B. Ontheshelves said...

Re: "Galapagos.

The Galapagos are an archipelago, so that's almost 2 favorite words rolled into one.

Moose said...

Jared X, there must be a story behind learning steatopygous from a Federal judge in court. Please tell.

Until you do, I'll give my version. "Jared X, stop butting in! You is just too steatopygous to do that in court."

Btw, another favorite word of mine is doucheweasel, meaning a person who is both a douchebag and a weasel. Example, "The doucheweasels who have caused the financial system collapse are going to receive a $300 billion dollar government bailout."

clindsay said...

I love the word "borborygmus" - the process of your stomach growling. Just think - there's a WORD for that!

I also like the word "swivet" (which is why I used it for my own blog) - it means "perpetual state of agitation - but it's really just fun to say.

On the other hand, I once had a friend who despised the word "panties" - made her absolutely crazy when people said it. I have no idea why.
