I am a self-confessed linguiholic (linguaholic? I don't bother myself with those petty distinctions), and keep an "idea dump" .rtf file open at all times where I crap out all my passing thoughts, which includes nice words.

At the moment the most beautiful word for me is effloresce / efflorescence, the former of which means "to bloom."

Other ones that strike my fancy: automaton, guttersnipe, panoply, ichor, somniloquent, luminant, perspicacity, janissary, diaphanous, and quintessence.

My favorite word has always been 'Today'. I'm not sure why but the word seems to carry significance and for some reason is very stimulating for me to read/look at.

Soçobrar, from Brazillian Portuguese, to sink or wrek (said of ships, the Sun when it's setting, emotions and pretty much anything).

Moleque, also from Brazillian Portuguese (African roots), a boy, a dude, a lad.

Blasphemy, English, Sno posted it and I said it out loud and decided it does sound good.

Sucesso, from Portuguese, success.

Couro, from Portuguese, leather (also said in Brazillian of one's skin).

Ouro, from Portuguese, gold.

Névoa, from Portuguese, fog, mist.

Ok, I like any word that figures in this poem (written by my friend Marina as a gift to me, an honour for it's one of the most beautiful poems I've ever seen):

Marina wrote:
Névoa Lua Nova

Névoa cobre o calor do couro
do menino louro, do calouro
e, ouro! É a lua nova
é a vida em voga
é a nova moda do corsário mouro
do pirata escuro
a singar os mares costeando os muros
da cidade negra, da capela herege
cortejando as ilhas
com as mãos vazias o marujo rege
essa sinfonia
essa hipocrisia da lei forasteira
canta a lei do sangue
marejadas ondas de peito desnudo
tatuagem rossa
albatrozes seguem o seu vão lamúrio
a escola dos fortes
ensinando a morte
aos que forem jovens e tiverem vida
ao valor revida
A LUTA! Não se revoga
é a lua nova
é a vida em voga
é o fio da espada do caçador morto
longo carteado
eterno costado, cortado de rogas
que a névoa ensopa.

When I was in middle school, I used to think it was really fun to say "butt beads". A beautiful word, in my opinion, is Jezebel. If I ever have a daughter, I will name her Jezebel.

I particularly enjoy the word eloquent, for what reason I'm not quite sure, but the meaning appeals to me. When you describe some eloquent you talk about somebody charismatic, influential, but in a profound or even poetic way...

Sort of like the Prodigy song (It's a little old by now, but the sound of the guy saying INHALE! Is awesome :D )

Despite what everyone likes to say and despite the fact that I've seen Donnie Darko twice now, I really don't see all that much in "Cellar Door," even though I did bestow that name upon my iPod.

Tolkien was the one to say it's the most beautiful expression in the English language. It sounds ok to me, but no bells ring from it.

If you ask me for an expression, I'd say my favourite is "high hopes."

lach2 You are SO right! tounge2

My favorite word: Love. For a couple of reasons, actually...

    1. It's the best thing on Earth. ^^

    2. I rarely say it, and when I do, I sorta get all embarrassed and shy. (Which I like for some reason. eh *shrugs* shy2 )

    3. It's fun to say in different accents.

    4. It's funny to say it really low and fast, "Luffluffluff!" ^^
