Favorite Words

This week Vicki at Children's Literature Network asked for submissions of favorite words. I have so many. I am embarrassed to say I submitted none because there are long lists in my journals. Not a good reason. My tablemate at this morning's Books for Breakfast event said his would be irritated. That would go on my least favorite words list, perhaps just because it sounds like what it means. Instead, my list would include things I like for their sounds as well as for their meanings:

clandestine   frosty   clarity   safe   chocolate   cardamom   maple   reflection   mom   mountain   ocean   cumulus   cirrus   chickadee   fjord   journey   porch   swing   nuthatch   perpetual   magenta

I'll stop there.


  1. So many good ones, Library Jewel. I love the one I got at the breakfast in my origami box: germinate.

  2. Let's make lists this summer, Brattcat! I can imagine you loving germinate, Joyce. I didn't get a box!

  3. The word that I got in my origami box was: finial. I liked the sound of it, but I had no idea what it meant. My tablemates clued me in, so now I know (though I'm not sure when I'll get a chance to use it).
