One of my students asked me recently about my favourite words in the English language.
Some sprang to mind immediately – home, hope, mother, peace – perhaps because of their meaning
Others came to me over the following hours – serendipity, mellifluous, discombobulated, nincompoop, languor, incandescence, crepuscular, epiphany,
I decided to see which others are regarded as beautiful. There are many lists and some of the words surprised me. But these I liked
Do you have any favourites?
