I have no idea where to put this. Oh, well, Words are "fun," so...
So I like words. Talk about words. Neologisms, etymology, favorite words, and why. Whatever. Talk about words.
I'd say that today, my favorite word, for a while now, is a simple, and, so I'm told, dirty word, that can mean any variety of things: The "F" Word. I'm not going to say it, as it may not be proper, considering that this is a topic-heading post in a public-access forum. Some kid may log on, see it, run to Mommy, and next thing you know, you have the BF,E township PTA on here whining. I've seen it happen before. But I digress. This is a wonderful word. It can express lust, rage, detachment, surprise, or nothing at all. It has the power to arouse, inspire, disturb, and offend. It's considered lowbrow, yet it appears in nearly every great work of modern literature. Yet, it's only one syllable. This is a truly great, multifunctional word. Use it. Often. And be not ashamed.
