  • Re: "Did you mean gunner?" And more than that, the list of Related Words assumes we meant gunner.

  • It bothers me that funner is not considered the valid comparative form of fun. Why? Because saying more fun is boring; that is to say, the phrase more fun is grammatically hypocritical. It is far more fun to say funner than more fun. Shouldn't a word be what it describes? Besides, I see no phonological reason why funner shouldn't be the valid form. It doesn't break any rules. Long live 'funner'!

  • When I was in 4th grade, I had to write a report about an animal of my choice. I looked at the back of our dictionary and this was the last word, so I chose to write my report about the Zyzzyva. Fond memories!

  • This is one of my absolute favorite words because it is so slithery fun to say. It is one of the rare English words with a cluster of four consonant phones /ˈsɪksθs/. As you speak that word-final consonant cluster, your tongue darts out and back in quickly as if it realized it shouldn't have stepped out in the first place. :)
