Words I love:
Words I don't love:
Tinfoil (arrgghbleeechh - it makes me think of biting down on it and getting that horrible shivery feeling)
Metastasize (both because of the implications and because I always mangle it when I try to say it)
Enate - This is a crossword-word meaning "related to on the mother's side". I've never seen it used in real life, and I don't like the sound of it.
Mic, when written as an abbreviation for "microphone". Technically, it's correct, but when I see it, I just think "mick". Why not write it as "mike", the way it sounds?
Enervate - It does not mean what it looks like it means, and for that, fie on you, enervate!
Word about which I am ambivalent:
Petulant (sounds nice, and ooogy, both at the same time)
How about you?
