The prompt for this week is “your favourite word,” or as we say in the United States, “your favorite word.”
Seriously, though, Linda wants us to pick our favorite word out of all the words we know for this exercise, and I just can’t do it. I mean, I like certain words better than others, but I’ve never really thought about which is my favorite. After 62 years, you’ve built quite a vocabulary. Mine is probably 10,000 words, and I’m not even trying. Those of you who read more than I do (that would be most of you) probably have an even bigger vocabulary, maybe 20-30,000 words. I mean, how do you pick a favorite? I’m sure that some of you have a favorite word, and if you do, great. Mazel tov! I haven’t chosen one.
I like the way this man picks his favorite words. He breaks them down into “woody” and “tinny” words, with the former preferable to the latter.
Geez, is the rain coming down here…
Stream of Consciousness Saturday is brought to you each week by Linda Hill and this station. Now a word about the Renault Dauphine. Made in France to make driving fun again!
