Favorite Words

Do you have favorite words?  Perhaps they are your favorite because of meaning.  Or because of a memory.  Or in many cases for me, just because they are fun to say.

Want to know a few of mine?

Palindrome.  Hands down my very favorite word.  I learned it in kindergarten.  Watching 3-2-1 Contact in a doctor's office waiting room.  (I also have a penchant for remembering useless information like sitting in a waiting room at age six.)  To this day I am bizarrely attracted to numbers, words and patterns that are palindromes.  Like I get strangely excited. 

Eclectic.  A high school vocab word.  Probably 9th grade.  New to me at the time but from that week on, I have found myself using it on a regular basis.

Y'all.  Slang.  But I picked it up in junior high.  I had a teacher who was very southern (we were instructed to reply yes ma'am or yes'm) and went to summer camp in Athens, GA.  I love that it can be a full sentence.  Y'all.  Depending on how you say it, it can mean a million different things.

Do you have any favorite words?
