Post a word that you either really like saying, or like the sound of, or that fascinates you for whatever reason.

For some reason I really like the word event horizon.

I'm not particularly into astronomy or anything like that, it just sounds mysterious and grand.

Not into mathematics, but I love the way it sounds.

hydroxypropyl-methycellulose

It's an ingredient of shampoo. I learned as a kid while in the bath, reading all the labels on the bottles. I just like the sound of it and the tongue movements involved in saying it. It's like"supercalifragilisticexpialidocious," except that it's an actual word.

Fathom73, I really like tintinnabulation, too!

Onomatopoeia is really fun to say, too.

I think my favorite word might be defenestration, not because of what it means, but because it just sticks out for me. I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing when I first learned it!
