List a word you love and a word you hate.



Love: probe

Hate: chunk













I hope I'm not the only lunatic in the world that loves/hates words....

And, I must admit, despise the sound of "flibbitygibbet."



Shudder.....

Is this about the mere sound/appearance of the word, or also about its meaning?

"and I stand

upon a mountain

made of weak and useless men"

Sevenseas, I'm guessing either or.

MusicGirl, really, it's not an animal thing(flibbitygibbit).....it's a swearword that 'Granny' from looney tunes says...really!

this thread reminds me of the movie sneakers and the scene where mary mcdonnell's character is talking about how she loves the word "passport".



love: antique, spork, poetry, baggins (yes, LOTR), creativity, photo/foto/photography, misfit

hate: gruel, painbow (i don't know what the hell that is, but i read it recently and it's a pretty common 'word', apparently)



there's another word i read quite a while back - selphotography - i assume it's self portrait photography. i thought that was pretty cool.

I love words Finding out new ones is incredibly fun for me.



Love: Pedant and other forms of it - pedantism, pendatic. I just love the way it rolls off of the tounge. Pedantic. Mmm. Also ethereal and proselytism.

Hate: Milk. Even before I became vegan, that word just rubbed me the wrong way.

Love: Cadaver

Hate: Stiff



When I love or hate words, it's all about the sound of them, not the meaning.



Love: Execution

Hate: Plow



I also love the word cello.

And pedantic.

Don't like spork, though.

Hate: machismo



Wait, this is sounding like a "what do I want in a relationship" post. Going off the sounds of the words alone, I still stand by my choice.

I think sh** really depends on the personsaying it, situation it is said in, and how it is said.

Ex. my grandmother saying it is funny, no matter what

My daughter saying it, on the other hand, I don't find so great.



Jenna, love anemone !!!



Love- bliss, kiss, miss, hiss,



Hate- piss
