Your favorite word

swimmerguy's picture

Hey, what's your favorite word, and what does it mean? Personally, I like the word anemonym. An anemonym is a name for a wind or storm. Like Hurricane Hugo is an anemonym.

My one time all-together

My one time all-together most enjoyed word is: Kuschelbar ( I can't put in the double dots above the a!)

It means bear in German I think.

And it's not cause I love bears (Even though I do.) I actually enjoy the word!

Runner up is: Guardiani (no idea if it's latin or italian or what it means other than the obvious guess of Guardian.)

Destino! Mi Arrendo! Al tuo dominio del tempo!

I like subfusc, a lot. It

I like subfusc, a lot. It means gloomy, or a drab. It's used in both the literal, and artistic sense.

I also, really really like nanook (hence ma name!), which is inuit for polar bear. In Inuit, it's ᓇᓄᖅ. Most of you probably won't be able to see that, unless you have inuktitut fonts on your computer.

Nanook is also the name of the dog in the movie "Lost Boys"!

I don't have a favorite,

but "pulchritude" is pretty awesome. 'Cause it sounds ugly, but means the opposite.

followed by epic, my second favorite, meant to be shouted when your freind manges to flip a hat off his foot onto his heaad

bubbling then its a mix up between epic and paradox

bubbling sounds like bub-lling or bu-bling and then paradox cuz if you can make a paradox happen you are 1)dead or 2)EPIC and thats why it is a mix up

Plus if you say it around Lehcure she'll crack up. It's worth it. :P

Right now...

Troglodyte. One, because it's the first word in FOREVER that I didn't actually know what it meant off the bat. And two, it's a fun word to call someone when they're being closed minded.

Meaning: Cave dweller/Someone who refuses to move outside what they see.

Nahhhh. Moist is the worst

Nahhhh.
Moist is the worst word. Ever.

Hmm...

What's wrong with moist slits?

BTW, this is supposed to be your *favorite* word, not words you hate. Always finding ways to turn things negative on here....

Dirigible. For how fun it is to say.

Followed up closely with the ever useful, adjective, verb, noun, and exclamation of choice:

Fuck.
Fucking fuck that fucked up fucker!

I honestly don't think it is real.

But "bojangles" is definitely the funnest (also not a word), if not the best.

But you HAVE to say it like a homeless man or a southerner.

Defenestrate

It means "to throw something out of a window." I like it. ^_^

Err...

That doesn't sound like the definition of hypochondriac at all, though.

That was a friendly suggestion, not an accusation.
