like: flabergast, bamboozle, interfrastically, wowzers (Inspector Gadget, gotta love him), suave, crass dislike: mistake (overly used by poker commentators for no seemingly no reason at all), Chelsea, Arsenal (sick to death of them both, all they do is win, whine and complain that they dont win more. They can all die horrible whiney deaths right now) Can't think of any more right now, but when i get some, ill tell you :) view post

[i:mzowqcjv]Interlocution[/i:mzowqcjv] has a certain ring to it. Also like [i:mzowqcjv]Amaranthine[/i:mzowqcjv] and [i:mzowqcjv]Tribadism[/i:mzowqcjv] (for its rhythm, not its meaning :P) view post

I like the word parochial. Especially when used to describe someone's openmindedness (is that a word, i feel like there should be a hyphen...) or lack thereof. I also the word thereof apperantly. view post

i like the word cunt, and i use it far too often. (if the photocopier had ears, they would be blushing.) i also like the word phlegm. and discombobulate. view post

"tom foolery" kind of two words but hey. Nice word gierra. view post

paradigm, I love that word when it is used properly. Hmmm I like using old and somewhat outdated phrases like "ship shape" or something it is quite fun at times. view post

"Sangfroid" is a very annoying word when used in English. "Incredulous" becomes annoying when used more than three times in one written work. "Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis", however, is a wonderful word, albiet one that I fear I may never learn to pronounce quickly. (That's a real word, by the way.) view post

diphthong. It is a stoopid word with four constanants in a row. What's not to like? view post

[quote="Curethan":mdcc1ge0]diphthong.[/quote:mdcc1ge0] i think it's a fantastic word! a word i don;t like is pink. everything about it is stupid. view post

Don't Care for... Snog (does this sound cuddly and/or romantic?) Free Market (too often tremendous intelligence and decision making capacity attributed to this) Jeezum Crow (stupidest Jesus Christ euphemism I've ever heard) view post

I wouldn't like certain words depending on situation and context. If someone were to call me "fag" or "pussy" as an insult, I wouldn't like those words at all. view post

you should never meet me then, i call people fags all the time. view post
