What's your favorite word?

What is your FAVORITE word? I like the words "turquoise" "giggle" "macaroon" just because they sound so good. And I also like the words "resilient" "reinvent" and "invincible"... and so many more.

What's yours?

      Dec 14 2011: hmmm interesting word, "phantasmagoria".. :)
      "Devotion" has something deep and rich about it to me. I don't know why~

        Dec 15 2011: yeah I love that word I have no Idea why (perhaps the way it sounds).

        but I do not like anymore than I like the word devotion because your right, it does entail something that is deep and rich...but i'm interested as to why you like macaroon? is it because its food? lol

          Dec 16 2011: haha I also have no clear reason why I like the word macaroon.
          maybe it's just that I like eating them (they are heavenly, I might add :P)

          I like the sound of it and the way it lingers in my mouth when I say this word. Macarooooooon

          haha, thanks
