It's a beautiful word. It is a condition, a frame of mind, a concept--malaise is an attractive word. And though it may not incite emotion in the same way that "moist" would, it still manages to light my intellectual fire every time I imagine it. Malaise.
Hope, love, courage, strength-- to me “believe” is the embodiment of all of these combined. Growing up my mom filled our house with countless signs bearing that word. For a long time, I didn’t appreciate or understand the word; I just thought my mom had a perpetual obsession with it. I had seen the phrase, “Believe in the magic of Christmas,” and while it is a great message (don’t get me wrong, I love the magic of Christmas), “believe” also goes so far beyond that.
Warrior. Just sound it out in your head. Warrior. It is a person that never backs down no matter how hard the circumstance is. I have always heard my mom say this word to me. It is what she wants me to be in life. Ever since I was a kid, she knew I would become a great warrior in life.
She lives in a world between reality and fiction.
Half of her unconscious, the other half journeying to Neverland.
Her mind wanders, free, no restriction
Closed eyes can’t shackle her wild imagination, beautifully grand.
Every night, she rises like a phoenix from the ashes, ready for her next adventure.
Whether it be to the stars, or to the depths of the sea.
Exploring caves, or landing on the moon, her own grand tour
Ostranenie is a fancy way to say defamiliarization. This word is typically associated with art as it describes an artistic technique to take common subjects and pull them entirely out of context. The objective of doing this is to get the audience to rethink the purpose of the object and develop a new perspective on the object.
My favorite word that I learned recently from my grandma is argle-bargle. It means meaningless or pointless talk or writing. Argle-bargle originated from the word argue and turned into argle-bargle in the early 19th century. The word is mainly used in the UK. It is a mash up of the two words argue and haggle and bargle was added because it rhymes. It like the way it sounds when it comes out of my mouth because it is like a tongue twister and it is really hard to say fast without saying a bunch of random sounds.
The practice of spectroscopically analyzing biological matter (such as enzymes and tissues) can be simplified down to a single word: biospectroscopy. One of many words that I particularly like is the word “biospectroscopy”. First of all, the word is long, simply sounds cool, and is fun to say. The meaning of the word is the spectroscopic analysis of biological matter/elements.
Not only can this be pronounced in different ways but the meanings are also a matter of interpretation. You can live your life and you also can go see a live show. The two are very different but my favorite version happens to be the first mentioned. Live is my favorite word because it can be interpreted in different ways, and the way it has been used.
My favorite word is “shrub”. I don’t really know why I like it, but I think it has something to do with how funny it sounds. When you say it, it’s like you’re saying “shh” and “rub” at the same time, but they blend together so perfectly. Also, the word itself puts a picture of a tiny green bush in my head, and the idea of this really tiny bush is awesomely adorable. Plus, when I think of the little bush, I can also start to imagine the whole forest around it, as well as the animals that live there.
Bubbles are cute, beautiful and very intriguing. They don’t have a color that could describe them, nor are they easy draw. Not only that, but the word, itself, is pronounced sounds adorable. It’s because of this interest, I love the word bubble. Bubbles are simple objects that could be created by only three things; air, water, and some soapy-detergent. Adding water and the detergent together creates these vulnerable, yet magnificent objects that amuses children and adults when blowing into the bubble wand.
My favorite word is doggy, mainly because it brings happy memories and feelings, and even makes me think of puppies. I mean who doesn’t like puppies. The sound of it also makes me feel like I'm a 17 year old child. The reason I say this is children will shout out “Doggy!”, when they see a dog or puppy. With adulthood right around the corner I like the feeling of having a kid-like mentally, and not having to stress too much about the future. This word is also just fun to say, dog sounds too dull or formal.
