Ultimate word

One of my favorite words is "proof." I confess I am a lush. I have a hard time rolling my rrrgh's, so I also like the word without it. I hate the progressive verb tense of "introduce." I look like a chimpanzee every time I say, "choco."

Post your most and least favorite word.

Heaven Help Me:

"Anesthetize" is a real tongue twister for me and I have to deliberately slow down to pronounce each sylable. Unfortunately, I still manage to get it wrong a majority of the time.

My favorite:

"Photography" a compound word of two Latin terms that have significance.

Lol Babe! My mom pronounces "shrimp" a little differently too! She almost doesn't pronounce the "h" at all. Is that how you say it? I always figured her being from the mid-west/south was why she said "srrimp".

I like lots of words. I can't think of any right now that I don't like. I'm always trying to increase my vocabulary (I like that word alot). I also like the word laboratory.

I've been several places where people pronounce that little crustation "srimp", and often when they do they use it plural (as in "srimps").

Two of my favorite words are actually French, parapluie and pomplemousse. I've probably misspelled both. There's just something about them that makes me want to laugh.
