Reading this article on BBC News made me wonder what my favourite word is. It has to be BAMBOOZLED!

How about you?

Floccinaucinihilipilification is the most confusing word I have ever heard!!
It is now my life's purpose to learn how to say that..

p.s. It means to describe something as worthless

I like words that I make up, like 'Smoog', 'Gwarn' and 'Kurkley'.

I like serendipity. It has a nice sound to it and no one can really explain what it means, still it has a nice connotation.

Quoting steff

I like serendipity. It has a nice sound to it and no one can really explain what it means, still it has a nice connotation.

Steff, found this for you:

n. pl. ser·en·dip·i·ties
1. The faculty of making fortunate discoveries by accident.
2. The fact or occurrence of such discoveries.
3. An instance of making such a discovery.

My definition of it is "a pretty good sci-fi movie"

My word? Hmmm......how about "Smile" (as in smile, and the world smiles with you)
