  1. Do you have a favorite word? Something that has a meaning you think is useful or particularly amusing, or maybe just one you enjoy saying?​

  2. Melancholy. Not a surprise there.

    I don't like it for its definition...because sad and all.

    I just think it's a super pretty sounding word.

     
  3. HUMANISMUU

    and OTOKEEEEEEEEE

    and NAAAAAANI?
     
  4. Okeedokee (or whichever other way there is to spell it). I write it a whole lot but I also say it while talking too. It's just a really fun word for me to use.

  5. Fuck.

    It's just so applicable to daily life.

  6. I dunno if I would call it my favorite word, but I've enjoyed using 'nimrod' recently. It's fun to say and the current meaning has an amusing etymology. Nimrod was a biblical figure whose name originally meant something like "skilled hunter." It came into modern use with the meaning of "incompetent person" thanks to a cartoon. Bugs Bunny called Elmer Fudd Nimrod after he fucked something up when hunting, basically the same as calling someone Einstein after they say or do something stupid, and the sarcastic meaning stuck.

    I really enjoy words with odd etymologies. I'm a nerd.

  7. This.
     
  8. Can't remember any specific English words, but I do like the German word Geschirrspüler. It means dishwasher, and literally translates to "Cutlery flusher".
     
  9. seconded
     
  10. Spooky
     
  11. Threesome

    =)
     
    • Nice execution! Nice execution! x 1
  12. Defenestrate

    I'm just amused by the fact that there's such a formal-sounding word that means "to throw (someone or something) out a window".
