"The amount of venom that can be delivered from a single bite can be gargantuan. You know, I've always liked that word..."gargantuan"...so rarely have an opportunity to use it in a sentence." -Elle Driver


Here are a few fun words that I like:
Perpendicular, supinate, tachypnea and tachypneic (ta-kip-nick).

Ah, cucamonga brings to mind another good one: chupacabra

If we're allowed a list then I'd add:

plethora and myriad. I once managed to hit it off with a girl in a Glasgow bar through a drunkenly skillful usage of the word plethora, so that one has bonus points for me.

Bollocks is an all-time favorite.

Formidable lives up to its meaning.

Burkina Faso is one of my all-time favorites, mainly because Faso in Arabic means 'they farted'. lol

Should've mentioned above, formidable sounds a zillion times cooler when someone French says it. Wish I spoke good French and could say it with that accent.

Any English word said in a French accent sounds either funny or sexy to me, depending on who says it.
