hey there all, I was wondering what everyone's favourite word is and why?

Mine is ostentatious. meaning over the top.

the great thing about the word ostentatious, is that its only ever used when the write wants to intentionally ostentacios by using it. < and thats the reason I rate it number one. wink.gif

Forsaken. It just sounds good. And looks good. And has that general aura of goodness that all words should have.

Scrotum - because I like the way the word sounds. It has a gripping quality to it.

Desirable is another good one. It sounds like what it describes.

I apologise in advance.

And obviously I'll blank this, but:

"C**t"

It is the most satisfying word to say. So many people find if offensive (women, strangely). I find that it makes me feel better - it's so plosive. I actually, nowadays, use it as a term of endearment with a lot of people. It's such a wonderful, feminine (believe it or not), aggressive - damn, everything - word.

But then, I'm not every politcally correct. My opinion is - "I've got one, I should be able to say the word. Let's not be shy, eh?".

I just find it hard to see this word as personally offensive - although I understand why others do, to an extent. It got worse since I saw the 'Vagina Monologues' - it was just so liberating. The C- word is such a liberating word, but because it's used so negatively some people find it difficult in day-to-day life.

Maybe I'm just annoying. I'm not a particularly polite person.

But, also, on a less offensive note, I love saying 'Fantabulous'. But I'd like to hear people's opinions on the C- word.

It's not that it offends me - I just really don't like the sound of it. It's like a cough - a harsh and annoying thing.

And I really didn't like it when you said it to my little chap with the 'other' word. mad.gif See < that's my angry face. biggrin.gif

You may have to remind me of this 'other' word. I think I may know what you mean, but I don't like to assume.

I still stand by the C-word. to explain why would involve other harsh words. I recommend everyone seeing/reading The Vagina Monologues. Hilarious and thoughful, and basically elaborating on my opinions with the word.

Then again, I'm very non-PC (it's complicated - I'd like to think of it, for me, as the very smallest form of bigotry, but it depends on people's perspective on it. Some people may not agree, but I see it as - I don't care if you're (insert genre/sexuality/gender/race/religion) - if you're a good person, that'se eough for me and that's all it boils down to - I'll make jokes about anything.

I like the word c**t too. Probably cos people get so offended by it, adds to the value. But it's a cool sounding word too, it's short and to the point

antidisestablishmentarianism. The longest non scientific word... It's great. I wish I could use it in context but the only chance I get to use it is when people ask me what my favourite word is.

I also like pissant, sloshed, bugger, bloody, freaking, beggar, ajumma, kimbap, beebimbap, pootak hamneeda, and probably my favourite: Neahhh
