Best. Word. Ever.
« on: January 03, 2011, 10:51:20 PM »
So what is it?

What is your favorite word?

I am doing something interesting with words in a project I'm working on and would like some insight.

To start it off, my brother's favorite: onomatopoeia

I humbly submit verbiage.

I have encountered the word contumelious for the first time. There aren't many words that I have to look up in a dictionary.

Similar to Ravenstar: verbosity. or perhaps loquacious

I like to talk to people about how much one of us is talking.

I'm surprised that no one has mentioned antidisestablishmentarianism yet.  Heck, I'm surprised I remembered how to spell it!

Borracho, which means drunk in Spanish.  So much fun to say.

Hi! Newbie here.  Thought I'd chime in with my favorite word ever: hyperbole.  Makes me want to drink coffee and throw a big heavy ball at some white things.
