    Yesterday my dad and I were talking, and we realized that schtick is a fantastic word without much in the way of a direct English equivalent. I guess “gimmick” is close, but it’s not identical and the connotations are different! Loan words are so cool.

    Also, both clumsy and klutz are excellent. They give me the mental image of someone tripping over their own two feet just from how they sound!

    Verily a very ineffective hitman

    The common nonstandard pronunciation of “realtor” like “realitor”. I use the standard pronunciation, but the other one just makes my brain glitch in a vaguely pleasing way.

    This isn't a real word but "sticky-uppy" is one of my favorite description words. It's been used in our family since like, my mom was young and basically sounds like exactly what it means; mostly to describe hair of all things

    Sticky-uppy is a great phrase! I feel like it's used a lot in British English and no-one bats an eyelid about it being 'real' or whatnot.
