Top Ten Tuesday – Favourite Words

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday! Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, this week it is Favourite Words. Initially I thought that this would be fairly easy, however there are so many words and they all seemed to escape me! After having a proper think about it (and a bit of research!) I came up with this list (definitions from Google):

Perplexed – “completely baffled; very puzzled.”

Discombobulated – “confused and disconcerted.”

Notorious – “famous or well known, typically for some bad quality or deed.”

Sparkle – “a glittering flash of light.”

Pearlescent – “having a lustre resembling that of mother-of-pearl.”

Illuminating – “helping to clarify or explain something.”

Gubbins – “miscellaneous items; paraphernalia.”

Nincompoop – “a foolish or stupid person.”

Demure – “reserved, modest, and shy (typically used of a woman).”

Ethereal – “extremely delicate and light in a way that seems not to be of this world.”

Bonus Word!

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious – “extraordinarily good; wonderful.”

What are some of your favourite words?

    As a kid, nincompoop was a favorite word (often used to insult someone). As I’ve gotten older, discombobulated has become a favorite.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier.

    Yay! I love seeing “discombobulated” on your list. It’s my all-time favorite word, lol. It describes what I use it for perfectly! I also love that you added “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” as a bonus. I love that word too! Thanks for stopping by!
