Please keep it SFW.
I like words with multiple meanings, or words with multiple homonyms. It makes pun creation so much easier.
Incidentally, did you know that you can create a sentence using 4 words that are spelled differently but sound the same?
“Okay Orville, I’d like you to put pen to paper to make the word that means ceremony”
Or to make it more concise
“Right, Wright; write ‘rite’”
I love verdant.
I think I’ve mentioned this before:
I have a fair few words that I love, even if I don’t use them.
Examples are syzygy, sussurus, and mellifluent.
I also have to give an honorary mention to the French words for “purr” - “ronronner” - and “paws” - “pattes”.
Jagoff: It is a good all purpose insult
I also like shenanigans.
Saw it on a sign many years ago and it’s still in my head.
defenestration. It says a lot about a language when you need a specific word to say ‘we threw someone out of a window’
I kind of like “fenestration”, which is the pattern of doors and windows on the outside of a building. Sometimes it is useful for getting an idea of the age and history of a building. For example, huge windows which were created in the early 20th century for light and ventilation often were covered over or reduced in size later on. But if you look carefully you can see traces of the original fenestration.
We’re word buddies
Kapakahi, it’s a Hawaiian word that basically means “Messed up” or askew, ect.
Some of my favorites include:
Ooh, crepuscular is a great choice!
Discombobulated. There are far too many days I feel I could use that word to describe myself.
Both really great words.
Think “comfy” or “cozy”, but add further emphasis on peace, well-being, and welcome/acceptance.
