what are some good words you like to use?
What are "come good words"?
Some good words I use:
Made a typo. this thread is going to die
Why? Is it my fault?
Back in one of my past lives, I was a member of a specially trained commando group, all cold blooded killers who would kill with a word.
And how did they give us this word, you might ask, since it would seem that the word would surely kill us as well?
They had to give us half the word at a time and, even then, it hurt like hell.
Obviously, it would be recklessly reckless to give out more than half of the first letter of the word - "U"
I often feel that when people come here and post things like "what are come good words you like to use?" they are employing a similar neuro-linguistic weapon in the attempt to assassinate American students of physics. It's painful to read, at least.
How does one give out half of a letter?
A word? How about - Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious !

Please don't give up. We were only teasing.
Anyway, is one interested in polysyllabic words, descriptive words, archaic words, or technical words (e.g. jargon).
A good resource for words is Merriam-Webster's http://www.merriamwebster.com/cgi-bin/wodcalendar.pl [Broken], which discusses history or etymology of words used in English.
etymology should not be confused with
etiology or entomology.
My use of words depends on context and I try to find the most accurate or appropriately descriptive word according to the situation.
Cornucupiscent-in the process of growing horns, in addition to having lascivious sub-associations.
