I like looking up words in the dictionary and I find the word of the day feature cool. I found my new favorite word this way which is Nepenthe.
noun

  1. a drug or drink, or the plant yielding it, mentioned by ancient writers as having the power to bring forgetfulness of sorrow or trouble.
  2. anything inducing a pleasurable sensation of forgetfulness, especially of sorrow or trouble.
Post those words and definitions!

I really like blossom and lullaby, blossom makes me think of a fantasy world full with flowers and trees

I use to get a laugh out of reading Urbandictionary.com when I was younger. It’s mostly slang words with somewhat perverted meanings.

I’ve never really thought of a favorite word but the only thing coming to mind right now is “Pink” because I love VS Pink and pink makes me just think of such a pretty color.

Oh I love fancy words. It's been my hobby over the last three years to check the dictionaries on every single strange word I meet. Strangely enough, I can't seem to pinpoint any specific word right now. I like pronouncing English words with Russian accent... Pronunciation! I always found it weird that it's the correct form, not pronounciation or pronounication. It has nothing to do with nuns as far as I know.

Oh, and colonel? Why the hell it's pronounced like kernel?

I also like words the plural form of which ends with a vowel, like criterion/criteria, datum/data, stimulus/stimuli, formula/formulae, sentence/sentenci, modicum/modica, phantasmagoria/phantasmagoriae. I just made up the last three pairs.

Ive recently learned the word “Philistine“ , I dont use it when speaking but I think it should be a more well known.
