Some time ago I was tagged in a note on Facebook where everyone was supposed to share five of their favorite words. I was thinking yesterday about that note and how much I love words. I thought it would be a fun thing to find out other people’s favorite words. Here are five that came to my mind:
Genuflect- To be servilely obedient or respectful.
Corollary- Something that naturally follows or results from another thing.
Verisimilitude- The quality of seeming real.
Limerick- A popular form of short, humorous verse, often nonsensical and frequently ribald.
Doppelganger- Someone who looks like someone else.
What about you? I’d love to hear some of your favorite words. (All definitions above came from the Merriam-Webster dictionary).
