This is splendid! Y'all are too funny. Liz, my husband says "soss oj" all the time! I think he does is just to vex me, knowing that soss-oj is one of my favorite foods.

I remembered a couple more of my favorites: jaunty, and vittles.

I like Valkyrie, chaconne, chug, rumpus, lumber, rumble, book (as in to move fast), ah-ite (Southern pronuncation of 'allright'), rule, rock, yo, uh-huh, Code-H, Big Chief Woolybosher, brigade, fireball, batrachian, lentiginous, ebullience, and smock.

Here are some of my favourite Glasgow words/expressions:

gallus - devil-may-care/insolent/cheeky/swaggering

skoosh - any fizzy drink - pop - soda

ginger - any fizzy drink - pop - soda (as above)

skelp - a glancing blow/slap

skelf - a splinter - especially in one's finger

Cheers...

I'm a great fan of gruntled - the rather chuffed opposite of disgruntled.

I love all of the above words. Are all Mudcatters "word freaks"? Can we make up new ones, here too?

My sister made one up at age 10, when asked where did she get that word, and she said, Out of my own "SENSATORY", love it.

And we made up several new ones in HearMe tonite:
Disfrontalted==your bra stap broke

Disfretteled==not happy with the frets on your fretted instrumentet.

From the Singing Detective: "elbow"

And from myself: socks, fox, lunch, schism, fast (as in "hey, those glasses you have on sure are fast!" as said to a colleague by a local shopkeeper)

Too many great words.

In Fellini's movie Eight and a Half, a reporter asks a long, rambling, convoluted question which the main characters answers with, "Perhaps." That scene opened my mind to the endless possibilities of the word 'perhaps' which I overuse.

I like thinking about the relationship between words like scintilla and scintillating, from the latin for spark and sparkling but I seldom get to use them. It might go to her head if I told her.

I love the phrase "shocked and chagrined" ... also the words ... vex, ebulliant, obstreperous, loquacious, bodacious, dashing (as in a man), fetching (as it describes how a woman looks), farfuckingout (that's a word, isn't it?), darlin' (as it flows off the tongue of a southern gentleman) ... moonchild

When deciding upon one's "best words," should one be judging by meaning, or phonetics? Personally, I like the sounds of "onomatopoeia," "mudhopper," and "good gravy."

"That's neither here nor there", a completely meaningless phrase that invariably produces a knowing nod. Love it.

Okay, we've talked about our least favorite words and expressions. What about your most favorites?

I like: conundrum, absolutely, fiddlesticks, sam hill, lands sakes, sonofabiskit, bogart (is that really a word? I know Mister and I use it all the time but we don't smoke joints anymore), abscond, fixin to, y'all, reckon, yonder, cold drink (as in, Who wants a cold drink? as opposed to Who wants a Coke/soda/pop/etc?), hotchacha, dangit, vex, subterfuge, stout (as in beer!), howdy/hidy..... I'm sure there are more.

I kinda like wazzup, just to vex people.

Anyone else?
