Word Collections

Some words have beautiful meanings, others have a intriguing sound when spoken. Still others can cause a person to shed a tear or recoil in anger. I love them all.

Writing makes me happy because words are my tools. They can be mixed and matched or strung together in new ways. Likewise, I love to read because words become a story that draws me into the lives of others. The way the author uses words is an art.

This is a list of some of my favorite words. These are words I like because of the way they sound. Some conjure up pleasant thoughts, others have a more disagreeable meaning, but they all have a beauty when spoken. Read these words aloud and see if you agree.

1. Rejuvenate
2. Maraschino
3. Lavender
4. Nemesis
5. Serenity
6. Cavalier
7. Sashay
8. Lily
9. Despicable
10. Society

I also delight in learning new words. I keep a notebook for unfamiliar words I come across. By recording the word and its meaning I can better remember the word.

I know I can't be the only one with a word collection. What are some of your favorites?
