Favourite Words

I like to write, I love to read; that makes it fairly obvious that I like words. These aren't my favourite words, because I like what they mean or because I think they sound exactly like what they mean (which, according to me, the words laughter and mystery really do!)
It's because I like saying them; even if only in my head (I don't talk all that much.) I like the way they roll off your tongue or how they have a sort of easy flow or how they somehow simply sound funny!

quirky
fantasy
euphemism
obvious
excruciating
turquoise
nightmare
weird
crayon
intrigue
accentuate
goblin
twist
chagrin
affectionate
falcon
vengeance

These are only a few that just came to my mind. Really. What are your favourite words and why?

Nitwit Blubber Oddment Tweak

Hah, I thought of that too! But it's more like a phrase-thing for me. You know I don't like the words 'nitwit' or 'blubber' by themselves. I like tweak, though! :)
Yay! You hadn't stopped by my blog in AGES.

Priya said...

Oh, yes, I like the word 'oracle' for the 'acle'-pronunciation! Glad you stopped by!

Confiscate..? I was on cloud nine when I got to use that word in a conversation.

I've been following up! But haven't commented on anything in AGES :P

I learnt a new word yesterday: logophile (noun) - a lover of words. :D

Scoundrel, Smirk and Cad because for some reason my wife uses them to describe the reasons she married me.
I also have other favorite words and since I wanted to better know myself and others, I joined favoritewords.com - take a look, you might like that site.
