Fun with words

A friend was telling me last night that he has a list of favorite words - two of those words are "mellifluous" and "gazebo".

I have since been trying to figure out what my favorite words are... somehow it's tricky although I know there are some good ones. So here's a start to my own list:

  • cavalcade
  • superfluous
  • kvetch
  • misanthrope
  • debauchery

This is mostly based on the sound of the words and how much fun it is to say them, by the way...

Any other suggestions?

ER - mesmerise. Meander and muddle also have appeal for me, especially muddle - maybe I need to get past the m's.
