This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is supposed to be funny book titles. I know I’ve read plenty of books with funny titles, but my brain is not working at all. I just didn’t have the motivation to dig through my lists to find funny titles either. So, I looked back at some old Top Ten Tuesday posts and picked one of those to do instead. My Favorite Words. I’d guess that most avid readers also love words. I look forward to getting my word of the day from my dictionary app every day and reading about its origins and usage. I’m a total nerd for words and proud of it.
Some of the words on this list are pretty common, others are not used in every day conversation. One is not really a word but a phrase. No matter how it can be categorized, it’s on this list because I find the word/phrase interesting. Be it for it’s definition, the pronunciation, or some other reason altogether. These are some of my favorite words.
I started thinking about this post on Sunday. On Monday morning my dictionary.com app told me the word of the day was abecedarian. Never heard that word before, but I love it! Decided that is how I will post my list…alphabetically. And you better believe that will be one of my words.
Do you have any favorite words? I’d love to hear them!
