My least favorite word: Festive. People get hooked on that word and use it in every other sentence until you strangle them.

Cloned From: 

Favourite for sound or meaning?

both sound and meaning

Deliberate is a favourite of mine also - it has a woody sound.

Great list!

Voluptious has always been a favorite of mine; it somehow sounds exactly like a word with its meaning should sound.

Shalom, y'all!

I was just thinking the other day how satisfying the word "tarmac" is to say out loud. So I said it out loud. A couple of times.

Johnny Waco (why are people looking at me like that?)

I like it! It's going on the list.

How about "cleavage", B? ;) Dang, you Americans copyrighted all those great words that are so fun to pronounce. ;)

Another winner! Nice sound AND imagery. It's going on the list.

I love the sound of 'ethereal','trance' and 'tranquility'. What say you? :)

Some great suggestions to add to the list. I really like "tranquility" and was surprised I didn't already have it.

Ethmoid.

cubic bone making up the nasal cavity... definitely a good addition. I haven't thought about scientific words, and I'm sure there's lots of good ones.
