    Grace

    As a professional writer, I love the entirety of language. I love the music of it, and the challenge of expressing ideas and feelings as elegantly and precisely as possible. I also like the play, English is a mercurial language; the meaning of words changes dramatically...

    Actually Two Words..

    Magnanimous (meaning noble) and Miscreant (meaning trouble maker). My friend and I used to call each other the Magnanimous Miscreant Duo (The Noble Trouble Makers)! Hehehe!

    Apothecary! The way that I learned this word was

    that I randomly got it stuck in my head and then looked it up in the dictionary and it's been my favorite word ever since. It turned out it had been in a book I was reading. I now keep a dictionary and notebook with me when I read to look up words I don't know or don't know how...

    And The Word Is

    SERENDIPITY !! Just reading the word brings a smile to my face. And the way serendipity works in such mysterious and not so mysterious ways at a time makes it for one of my most beloved and appreciated words in the English language. And that is indeed another way to learn that...

    Vernacular....

    I have one word that a favor over any other.....VERNACULAR. Although I don't get to use it as often as I like I still manage to fit it in a conversation once in awhile. A man who says this word to me turns me on instantly.

    Nonchalantly

    "Nonchalantly" - to be casually unconcerned or indifferent; uninvolved. i just love saying it and seeing the looks i get when people wonder what the hell i just said. it makes it even better when you add a slight british accent.

    '****' is my favourite word I use it quite

    regularly. Don't get me wrong I'm educated and have a decent vocabulary but I like the simplicity of the word. It can be used in different tense and is quite a strong word. I know that many people don't like the word. And some find it offensive however I don't give a **** lol I...

    Here's My Top Two

    1. Fresh 2. Stupendous 'Fresh' is an onomatopoeia - which means it's a word that sounds like what it is. A happy word, a good word for something new and in the springtime. 'Stupendous' is again to me another optimistic word, but also sounds a little bit silly at the beginning...
