Cool Words

Post by ArgentDandelion on Mon Apr 23, 2012 11:04 am

Have you ever encountered an interesting, unusual, or little-used but useful word? If you would like, you can post it here, and we can talk about them.

A few of my words:

Effete
Unconscionable
Confluence
Sputter
Trundle

No, not everyday words, and certainly not two-word phrases. Only unusual or little-used words fit in here. (Although arguably "pungent" is suitable for inclusion.)

Confidentiality. I like the way it rolls smoothly off of your tongue. Also, irk sounds odd. Kind of like you're choking (lovely, I know). People never say "That irks me so much" or "Please stop, you're irking me". P:

Sanguine! I love the sound of this word, and it's just really pretty to me (I tend to have a weakness for words that sound very fluid, they're so nice).
