In the back of one of my notebooks, I've been keeping a list of words. Any time I come across a word that really catches my eye, I'll add it to my list. It's not necessarily the definitions that matter (although sometimes they are quite fitting), but more of how perfect they are to say or write. I sometimes wonder how odd it is to keep a list like this, but I have a feeling that there must be some out there who totally get it.
If I were to choose, I think that my absolute favorite word is probably "dwell"—because that combination of letters always looks so curious to me. It rolls off the tongue quite nicely, too, don't you think? Dwell. Dwelling. Dwells. Literally every time I read it somewhere, it never fails to elicit some sort of emotional response. Odd, really.
And to clarify a few of my other favorite words: I mean wee as in small (which should be apparent, considering I use this word way too much), relish as in "to savor or enjoy" (not tiny and delicious pickle bits), and commune as in "intimate communication" (although, I do enjoy the church-y way, as well).
What words would be (or perhaps already are) on your list?
