top ten tuesday: favorite words
posted by soe 3:06 am

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday from That Artsy Reader Girl invites us to share some of our favorite words.

I love wordy topics like this. One year, Karen gave me the protection of the word “woah” for Christmas, because I was adamant that it was different from “whoa” or “wow.”

Anyway, here are ten of my favorites at the moment:

  1. zephyr
  2. quixotic
  3. hitherto
  4. rickety
  5. effervescent
  6. aplomb
  7. quirky
  8. antepenultimate
  9. dazzle
  10. susurrous

What are some of your favorite words? Share them in the comments!

Susurrous is new to me!

I’d never heard of antepenultimate before this list, so you’ve taught me a new word!
