Thread Name: BS: Best Words
Subject: RE: BS: Best Words
I like words that make people do silly things with their mouths. Try these out loud and try to look dignified...

Wasps

Vests

Desks

And while we're at it, am I the only one who has trouble casually saying the phrase DIGITAL TRADITION?

One other thing... I've been on a quest for the last couple of years to find 2 words in the English language.

First: The ONE-syllable word with the MOST number of letters. (So far I've collected a few with nine letters, can anyone give me a legitimate offering with ten?)

Next: The word with the most SYLLABLES and FEWEST number of letters. (Currently I have a couple of three-syllable words made of only 4 letters.)

Anybody wanna play? :o)
