FAVORITE WORDS IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE

I'm constantly fascinated by words! Here are some of the ones I think are particularly lovely. What are yours?
  1. Effervescent
  2. Petrichor
  3. Ingenue
    I've seen this spelled as ingénue and ingenue but for the sake of this list I'm going with the version that isn't used in the French language as well
  4. Apotheosis
  5. Waters
    Plural.
  6. Cottage
    Like the small home, not the cheese
  7. Vitality
  8. Galvanize
    Electrochemistry for the win?
  9. Fabulist
  10. Ephemeral
  11. Enough
    Flexible in any context, comforting or cruel. Pushes against unchecked American anxiety and ambition; a subversive word and a useful one. "Enough is enough" is my favorite sentence for the same reason: spooky and cool.
