Some Favourite Words



Mugwump, chubby, dunk and whoa,
Swizzle, doom and snoop,
Flummox, lilt and afterglow,
Gruff, bamboozle, whoop
And nincompoop.

Wallow, jungle, lumber, sigh,
Ooze and zodiac,
Innuendo, lullabye,
Ramp and mope and quack
And paddywhack.

Moony, undone, lush and bole,
Inkling, tusk, guffaw,
Waspish, croon and cubbyhole,
Fern, fawn, dumbledor
And many more...

Richard Edwards

We might enjoy more salubrious speech after imbibing a fifth on the firth of Forth.

Frazzle, balderdash, mishmash, muckamuck, huckleberry, razzle dazzle, sesquipedalian. I loved tsuwm's recent word, "spizzerinctum." There is a medication that I've always liked, and, indeed, a patient once named her baby after it: "deladumone"

I have to admit, my favorite word "epicaricacy" hardly "rolls off the tongue...."

I just saw this one today: frission. Nice. Better than fission, though that's nice too.

frission

I've heard tell of (actually read) frisson, but not the one with the extra yod.
