Orangutan is my favorite word in any language (with the possible exception of pickelhaube).

Not only is that a good word, that is a funny thing.

Fantasticate has already been said.
Not that there is anything wrong with it, it is a pretty awesome word.

Perhaps he's being economical with his words, and doing both simultaneously?

Ooh, simultaneously. I like that word. At the risk of sounding morbid, though, my favourite word is probably anguish. I just love the sound of it, particularly the "gwish" bit at the end. Hubris is another of my favourites, but I blame that on classical civilisation A-level.

I love that word too.

The other day one of the gals in my writing group described one of my characters as creepertastic.  I like this word too.

"the state of being able to achieve honors".

floccinaucinihilipilificatious

Wow!  That's longer than a Polish surname!

My favorite word ever of all time is:

Non-contradiction

On my WoW hunter, my first three pets were named

Anathema
Antithesis
Apotheosis

All good ones.

susurration

Blame that on Terry Pratchett.

I'm now in love with Albequerqe, anathema, egad and borracho with the proper rolling of the double-r's.  Great words.  I'll work on a sentence using all those words unless someone else beats me to it. . . .

I tried to play senesce in Words with Friends the other day and it wouldn't take it. Made me mad.
