So, everyone, I've decided to do a continuation (thus the third) of my series of favorite words since I noticed that I probably used the same word on at least five consecutive Tumblr posts.
That word happens to be ethereal. It ranks very highly among my favorite words, not only because of its meaning but also because of its configuration. Okay...I'm going into major nerd mode when I say this, but this is how I determine favorite words:
(in no particular order):
1) How they sound rolling off my tongue.
2) Their structure. For example--ethereal has two vowels right next to each other. That's something I rather like. And also because you can visibly see two e's so close to each other. OK. That was probably really weird/confusing/what-the-heck-ish.
3) Their definition.
So after all that, you may wonder if I am able to dislike any word at all.
The answer is yes.
But uh...I can't say which ones yet. (I can't think of them right now, but I do know they exist.)
Anyway, here's my continued list of favorite words (in no particular order):
a. The quality of being novel; newness.
b. Something new and unusual; an innovation.
c. A small mass-produced article, such as a toy or trinket.
Should I include the definitions of select words the next time I do a list?
Gimme your top five favorite words (or phrases) as of lately.
