In a podcast by Stacy Julian, possibly the one with Ali Edwards, she talked about writing a list of her favourite 50 something words. The number was significant because it matched the age she had just reached.
I thought that was such a great idea. I began my list on the 20th September last year and as this post goes live, I am eight words short of my age total … who knew that listing favourite words would be difficult and prolonged?
On my list, in no particular order, I have words ranging from archipelago (my very favourite word) to passport to Paraquat (simply because I like how it sounds when said aloud) and diaspora …
What words would be on your list?
