I thought the other words thread was too negative, so I decided to create a contrapuntal one. In this thread, post words that you think should be used more often in everyday conversation, or words that you just think are awesome.

For me, "contiguous" and "unconscionable" are both great, but nobody ever uses them. It makes me sad.

That's because they make people trip over their own tongue. D:

I love "discombobulated," but noone ever uses it. Honestly, it is one of the most satisfying words I've used. :D

"Flarg." My friend's family made it up, and I really like it, and think more people should know about/use it.

Indubitably. And it needs to spoken fast. It sounds like it has more syllables that it should. I like saying it. Indubitably.

That word indubitably needs to be more well known.

For some reason I really like the words 'precisely' and 'perhaps'. o.o I have no idea why.


Also, 'fuck' is a really nice word too. :P

DAMNIT gal! You beat me. ;-;
Wait, that's a good one. DAMN. Very satisfying to say, and doesn't really sound vulgar either. Not many words are like that.

Also I've become obsessed with 'bewb', which is just a totally cute way of saying boob. *nods*

I'm gonna go away and think of something more sophisticated now. Wait, there's one. Sophisticated. I like that word.

Things I'd like to hear more include "often" with a silent 't', "nuclear" with no extra 'u', "uvula", "peripheral", "shrapnel", "ligament", and anything stemming from "exe-".

Nevertheless, ergo, forsooth, draconian, wisearce, tomfoolery, quagmire, plethora, and brazen to name a few.

I have a much longer list of awesome words...but I'll hold off for now.

I think the only person I've heard pronounce 'nuclear' wrong is George W Bush.

My encouraged words happen to be.... ergo, vis a vis, concordantly, colloquialism, nitwit, blubber, oddment, tweak, expiditiously (although i'm sure that's not spelled right), amongst, congregate, and that's about it.
