Have you ever come across words that just sound interesting? There are those sweet words that sound a bit musical, or words that are multi-syllable and sound ambitious. Or, there are simply those words that are intriguing to the ear regardless of what they mean.
Here’s a list of some of the words I find interesting. Please join in and comment on words you like to hear.
carillon (this word sounds just like the bells it represents)
melancholy (when I was small I thought this was another type of dog) 🙂
polyester (the word sounds more interesting than the material feels)
clickety (and clackety, as these words are seldom used individually)
mundane (sounds too nice to mean something common)
despicable (Who among us hears this word without picturing Daffy Duck saying it? It’s a word that must be spoken with a sufficient amount of spit behind it, don’t you think?)
and my favorite totally made-up word is: Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
Oh, that reminds me of another word that suits me to a T: precocious!
