Wordsmith

Some words should be used more. I love words and frequently get flack about my use of so-called "big" words. Here's my personal list of words I feel should pop up more in casual conversation.

Scandalous
Nay
Muster
Fie
Minutiae
Germane
Rhapsodic
Ignominious

Feel free to post your most/least favorite words.

I like "amiss." One of our auditors is from Canada and once told me "there's something amiss with this spreadsheet." I liked it.

I'm a big fan of gregarious and licentious, as well as inextricably and seraphic, though not all used together... that would just be weird. Narcissistic is another good one.

until recently i didn't even know this word existed, but after a series of events, i love the word: pyknic.

I'm so glad I'm friends with smart people. I like words that spell check don't reconize.
