  • I once received a chain email full of spoonerisms.. my favorite was a waiter trying to say " Let me show you to your seats" that instead said " Let me sew you to your sheets".

    June 25, 2009

  • I first looked at this word thinking the "th" was a syllable, and I was thinking.. gifTHorse.. what on earth.. now I get it.

    June 24, 2009

  • An interesting book, that, while fiction, talks about synaesthesia, is The Name Of This Book Is Secret. I liked it al ot and found the extreme synaesthesia interesting.

    June 24, 2009

  • I get word-color ,sound-color, and number-color synaesthesia pretty strongly. I find the topic very interesting.
    fer_k has it as well, just based on a comment of theirs I read on gloaming

    June 24, 2009

  • Gloaming.. for some bizarre reason I always think of jello when I hear this word.. I have no idea why.

    June 24, 2009

  • what about serene?

    June 24, 2009

  • Noticed your comment on oneiric. Words have colors for me, too. Same with sounds. There's actually a name for it- synesthesia.

    June 24, 2009

  • I love this sound. FLUMP!

    June 24, 2009

  • I get what you mean by the rolling "r".I think.Is it kind of in your throat? The French use it too.( I speak French).

    June 21, 2009

  • It's like a cross between infanticide and anticipate.. maybe it should mean when you know about an infanticide in advance.

    June 21, 2009

  • I am not Dara Torres!

    June 21, 2009

    June 20, 2009

  • Fun word! Adding this to my favorites.

    June 20, 2009

  • No, I am not Dara Torres. What makes you think that?

    June 20, 2009

  • A phrase you never want to hear in the presence of a doctor or when cleaning your closet

    June 20, 2009

  • I actually never read the book, but I just requested it from the library after googling "Douglas Adams 42". Thanks for an inadvertent book suggestion!

    June 20, 2009

  • Okay then, I won't.Are you going to tell us what they are or do we not want to know?

    June 20, 2009

  • There's a hilarious video of one of the 2007 spellers getting this word on youtube.Just search sardoodledom.

    June 20, 2009

  • melodrama

    June 20, 2009

  • Whoops.. it's actually Sardoodledom. I listed it wrong the first time

    June 20, 2009

  • Thank you.I don't know what drew me to it, but it's been my favorite number for a while.

    June 20, 2009

  • Cool word! Now how to fit this one into a conversation.. "I had the weirdest oneiric vision last night as I was speelping"

    June 20, 2009

  • Now when will that be?
    Is it something used to cover a squirrel nest?

    June 20, 2009

  • Love this word.. though I don't have it, not being a superstitious sort of person.

    June 20, 2009

    June 20, 2009

  • Love this word.. taking pleasure in others' misfortune

    June 20, 2009

  • You should create one, madmouth.

    June 20, 2009

  • Umm... Blankets for hiding the squirrel invasion from party guests?

    June 20, 2009

  • Really!? I can't believe they would sue over that.People sue over anything these days.

    June 20, 2009

  • It means "In a random manner"

    June 20, 2009

  • Love this word.I just imagine this little French boy in a beret jumping up and shouting youpi!

    June 20, 2009

  • Love this word.It was on the Round One Test for the National Spelling Bee last year.

    June 20, 2009

  • What about angel and angle?

    June 20, 2009

  • Quite has always seemed like a very proper, classic "British" word to me.

    June 20, 2009

  • Great list!

    June 20, 2009

  • Love your definition, bilby!

    June 20, 2009

  • Umm... the translation for this one is not very pleasant.. "pee in bed"

    June 20, 2009

  • The losing of one's hair

    June 20, 2009

  • The original usage of email, before computers came along, was as the name of a blue-green color.

    June 20, 2009

  • Literal translation: It's the end of the green beans. Oh No! The end of the green beans is coming! Whatever shall we do?

    June 20, 2009

  • What about "email"? It's pronounced aymy and it's a blueish green.

    June 20, 2009

  • Yes, all the words on my list are real.They are listed in the dictionary.

    June 20, 2009

  • I just love this word, for no particular reason.

    June 20, 2009

  • "Let's get executed" !? Umm, suicidal much?

    June 20, 2009

  • The sound yogurt makes when you pour it out of its container.. this word was invented by me!

    June 20, 2009

  • Interestingly spelled word...

    June 20, 2009

  • I just love the way this word is spelled. It looks pretty.If that makes any sense.

    June 20, 2009

  • Sizood? that is quite possibly one of the funniest words I've ever heard. Or in this case, read.

    June 20, 2009

  • I love your definition, whichbe!

    June 20, 2009

  • hmm.. apple-polish... why have I not heard this word before?

    June 20, 2009

  • This word's one of my favorites. It was on one of the lists I studied for spelling, and I took a liking to it.

    June 20, 2009

  • What about "fixin' to"?

    June 20, 2009

  • love this word

    June 20, 2009

  • translates to.. "to bring back one's strawberries"? Huh?

    June 20, 2009

  • skipvia-
    I LOVE the word evanescent. ( from 100 most beautiful words)

    June 20, 2009

  • I hate this word with a passion.It is ugly-sounding for one, and sounds kind of derogatory in my opinion. I prefer "Expecting", as "with child" sounds kind of old-fashioned

    June 20, 2009

  • cool word!

    June 20, 2009

  • Ooh.. this word sounds pretty.. almost like the name serafina.

    June 20, 2009

  • kukukuku.... the sound of a cuckoo clock that won't shut up! LOVE this word!

    June 20, 2009

  • cool! My personal favorite is phthongometer.It's just fun to say.

    June 20, 2009

  • fufluna? Awesome word chained_bear! Now how does one pronounce it? Maybe like foofloonuh?

    June 20, 2009

  • Anagrams are too funny.. here are my personal favorites of my name:
    A whaleboat jean zips
    A jalapeno beats whiz
    A plaza jawbone heist
    Azaleas jab whine pot

    June 20, 2009

  • Hmm... is "thwonk" a real word? I love that one.

    June 20, 2009

  • Wow.. I never knew there were so many words that had phth!

    June 20, 2009

  • I actually never read the book, but I just requested it from the library after googling "Douglas Adams 42". Thanks for an inadvertent book suggestion!

    June 20, 2009
