    Echolalia is a really pretty-sounding word. Rolls off the tongue so nicely!

    A gameshow reminded me that the word paradiddle exists and is delightful

    Quaquaversal is deeply satisfying to say.

    Geological term meaning dipping downwards in all directions from a central point. I think it's used in astronomy too, but I'm a bit shakier on the definition.

    not a word, but shout out to the /ʒ/ phoneme for 1) looking so supremely funky 2) being altogether too much fun to draw and 3) sounding as zesty as it does. (its the "g" in "rouge," aka the voiced version of sh")

    You know what's a good fucking word?
    Tirade
    Fun, fun to say, not fun to experience i imagine, maybe cathartic to go one

    I made this dang thread so when I just remember random words out of the blue I can put em somewhere, thats just the word of the day! The words i haphazardly remember!!!! - That I want to use someday, put em somewhere in a sentence
    Store em somewhere public

    Song - feels just like it is, musical
    Lark - the whole ark part carries it for me, but the L sound is a good touch

    Excellent words, words that end with sounds that come from the same place, neat! (NG, K) but theyre a lil different (ng is a nasal sound, k is a velar consonant)

    I Googled it cause I noticed how they ended, where the sound formed when I spoke them with my mouth, and I did not want to get my observational info too wrong haha

    Anyway I thought it was interesting!

    I've always loved the word lethargy, it sounds really nice (even though the description for it is often not so nice)

    Does slang count? Because “squish” for “platonic crush” is so useful and good!!

    Speaking of slang, I’m NorCal enough that I say “hella” constantly and I find it very useful, versatile, and fun to say.

    Unreplicable

    It's a word with good sounds beside each other, if you say it with your mouth, my favorite parts are the pl and c and bl

    my word of the day, a tribute to the fact that my beloved wife-to-be did not realize she was thinking of susurrus because we're literally in the middle of chapter two of The Wee Free Men, is flint. bones of the chalk.
