I'm currently writing a book (very early stages) and would like some cool vocabulary. Just post your favorite word(s)!

mine: Vermilion (excellent, no?)

babbling

My favorite word ever is- parabola. I don't even like math, but I just love saying that word. Parabola, parabola, parabola, parabola.
I also really like the words- shrub, quite, and sophisticate.

equivocate
I am a terrible liar, and so when you are a young kid you have to find a way to not get in trouble. I would tell the truth in a way that led one to believe something else. My dad eventually caught on and called me a Master Equivocater, but I love that word. And it is way better than outright lying.

Ha ha! :lol: That's my husband's favorite word too! Well, that and sherpa.

My favorite word is actually not a very used word, but it is real. The word is amn't, a contraction between am and not. For example, I amn't afraid of you.

And to think if I ever came across it when grading, I'd assume it was some sort of typo! That's a good one!

I love the following words:
circumlocutions
fenestration
bollards
vices
smitten
limpid
drivel
I am the Impulsive VampVixen.
