It's not my favorite word but I use 'definitely' a lot! My cousin and I figured out that when we type back to eachother I use LOL a lot and she types ahahaha a lot. I asked my 4 year old what her favorite word is and she said, "beautiful" then I asked my 1 year old and she did a lot of baby jabber but it sounded like, "my mom rocks!"

Hands down, it has to be "historicalicity"; right, Jonas?

Toss up between 1) strategery, and 2) lockbox.

HA!!!! Nice Valkyrie!!!! Is that also meant to be a commentary on the question of the day, or of the LJW in general?

My favorite word is s*@t. It's a general, all-purpose word.

Any word with "tron" in it. I haven't yet come across one that I don't like. Not to suggest there might not be.

The words I like can not be spelled out onto this forum, so I guess I'll go with "monkey."

i like to use the word "guesstimate" but my hubby says it isn't a word....To me, estimate means an educated guess. But if I have no clue, then I am just plain shot-in-the-dark guessing.

Ineffable. It is a word that describes something that cannot be said in words. Weird paradox there.

I suppose it could be one of my two favorite disorders from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of mental disorders:Trichotillomania and Frotteurism.

"There is one word that says it all and that one word is 'Youneverknow' "....

Flap Doodle 6 years, 3 months ago

That word does not exist in any language. It can never be uttered by a human mouth.

Crossfire (Anonymous) says… "…………..there are 7…………………still can't say any of them."SPCFCSMFTI'm sure you can't say any on this forum, but I have heard at least the four with asteriks on television.
