  • The Word Room

    I thought I would give this thread a shot as I had enjoyed a new word a few moment's ago being succinct inspired by seismic. So immediately I had a brainwave and thought start a new thread asking what other peoples favorite words are and why.

    So here goes..

    One of my favorite words is indefatigable. It means not to tire easily. I think I came across it around early 2000. I remember trying to pronounce it and can do so now with great results lol.

    What is your favorite word and why?

    Cheers

    Serendipity is one of my favourite words, especially when I am a beneficiary

      Hmm interesting word. Just googled it now then honed it down a little resulting with: The princes, he told his correspondent, were “always making discoveries, by accidents and sagacity, of things which they were not in quest of”.

      Then I saw sagacity meaning Wisdom, but had to google that one to :biggrin:

        One of my favorite words is Excelsior. Evokes noble feelings, most likely inspired by Longfellow's poem of the same name.
