These are a Few of my Favorite Words

Since I haven’t finished a couple of the longer blog posts I’m working on, I decided to go with a fun little one, where I share with you some of my favorite words that are either obscure or really fun to say, and their definitions!

    I love all those words! Especially argent. I’ve actually never known about “flipperling” but that’s hilarious, I like it XD

    You know, it would be interesting if you made it a signature blog series. I mean, your blog is called “The Music of Words” 😉 Just a thought.

      I actually learned the word “flipperling” from a song I sang in choir, called “The Seal Lullaby” composed by Eric Whitacre. (You should listen to it sometime if you can; it’s beautiful.) The text was taken by a poem by Rudyard Kipling about a mother seal singing to her baby seal, and since it uses “flipperling” in there our teacher told us what it meant and I think it’s pretty adorable. 🙂

      What do you mean by a blog series? Like, me doing this for multiple posts where I share words and their definitions?

        Wow, I’ll totally check that out!!
        Yeah, that’s what I meant.

        You should! I love that song.

        Ah, okay. I’ll think about it; that does sound interesting. I’m at least going to do another post like this sometime…not sure if it’ll become a series, but it will appear again!

        Scintillating. Scintillating. Scintillating. I could say it all day!

    I love this list of beautiful words! My favorite one is Petrichor. Some of my favorite words are Zilch and Hitherto, I just like the way they sound and their meaning.


    • Lana June 26, 2016 / 10:34 AM

      Thank you! And ooh, those are fun words! Hitherto is really fun to say. 🙂

    My favorite words are: shimmer (bet you never guessed that), quiescent, and benighted. I also have a few others I really like, but those are the top three.

    I like scintillating in your list. And cacophony is fun to say out loud.


    • Lana June 26, 2016 / 10:33 AM

      What? Shimmer? I never would have known…

      Ooh, those are really cool words! Thanks for sharing ’em!
