This is somewhat inspired by [livejournal.com profile] koalathebear shall/will post.

Are there any words you especially like? Not because they convey cool concepts (kittens, love, cash) but because of the way they sound.

Hmmmm, if I have to come up with mine:

malodorous: It's that very first strong "o." True, the word 'odor' has it too, but it's too short to support the weight of it.

lumps: because 'ump' sounds bouncy

parallelogram: because keeping all those 'l's and 'r's in the right order is a trick. I always want to say 'pararrelerelgram' or similar

boink: How can you not like that?

verdant: is sounds so pleasant and a bit starchy, like a Victorian old lady out for tea.

Do you have any of yours?
