Most beautiful Word?

Post what you think the Most Beautiful Word is, and maybe why. Maybe it has some background to it even?

When I was ten to twelve, I used to think it was "sapphire". No particular reason, I just liked the word.

Now I like "queen", "ebony" and "mahogany". I know there are others, but I can't think of them at the moment.

You mean, like The Sapphire Palace? tounge1 It's only too bad that I've changed the name. grin

For some reason, I like the word, "key." I don't think of it as the most beautiful word, so I may have to do some more thinking on that one.

Hmm, I think I'd like to go with Caeruleus, the Latin word for blue.

Kay-roo-lee-us, or something like that. I find that the word has a nice ring to it, although I've never even had to say it out loud. After all, there isn't much of a reason, since it's a Latin word, anyway. rolleyes

Although I don't know why, the word, "epiphany" has come to mind. I suppose that's a good word, too.

Kim ^^

At least, that's the most beautiful name to me smile

(Okay, if I didn't feel obligated to say that, I'd say, "Bonne Jenet"--but only 'cause it's really fun and sexy to say with with a quasi-French accent with my head cocked to one side and one eyebrow raised ^^)

But those are names...if I was to choose a word, I'd say uhh um...anything that's said by a female grin Especially, "Huey..." But that's a name again...how about uhh that sound that one girl makes at the end of those Tag bodyspray commercials smile

Okay, no really, um..."melancholoy." But again, only if a female says it (specifically in a detached, *sigh-ful*, kinda dreamy-like way shy2 )

I love saying "dodecahedron" in English. I don't know why it's just fun.
But I prefer the Japanese formal good-morning. I love saying Ohayo Gozaimasu! Go on, learn how to pronounce japanese vowels and say it yourself!

Most people will think I'm crazy, but I actually have a document of favorite words which now totals 123. Obviously, I just can't choose a favorite. Instead, I enjoy recording every word that sounds nice or means something to me. grin

Some quick examples: clarity, pavilion, iridescence, lackadaisical, blasphemy, frivolity, semblance, deluge...

I love the word "Ithil", the Sindarin for "Moon", even if I have yet to learn how to pronounce it without spitting. I don't know why but I've always liked to hear Elves speak.

Thats amazing, Im not the only one who thinks it, I thought I was the only one.

I go with Cellardoor ha. if you say it as one word instead of two seperate words, and just focus on the sound of the word then... I think it sounds great. haha

I'd like to go with "twilight." There's just something about that word that strikes something within me.

"Inhale", as dumb as it may sound normally, can have a cool sound if you speak it with an evil voice. INHALEEEEE!

Try it smile
