We have been doing a lot of vocabulary studying lately around here. SSATs and ISEEs will do that to you. There’s a lot about standardized tests I do not love, but any discussion of vocabulary and words I flat-out do.
Last weekend, we had a couple of hours in the car as a foursome. We were talking about words, and it led into a discussion of our favorite words. First of all, let me say that talking about words with my three favorite people in the world was fantastic. I actually think this is a great conversation starter (but maybe that only reveals my deeply nerdy personality). I was interested to hear Grace, Whit, and Matt’s favorite words, and also to think about mine. It’s impossible for me to pick one. But, here they are:
Grace: onomatopoeia (long discussion ensued of buzz, and fizz, and of how one of my words is in fact also an onomatopoeia)
Lindsey: shimmer, elegy, archipelago, phosphorescence
What is your favorite word? Why?
