Monday Debate: Wordsmithery
Monday, December 05, 2005
Throughout my childhood, I had a knack for speaking well beyond my age. By this, I mean that my vocabulary was advanced, but only selectively so. Spelling was a cinch for me, and certain words just sort of came naturally. Let's put it this way: my peers used to make fun of me for it.

Someone asked me this weekend what my favorite word in the WHOLE WORLD is. Despite the momentary thrill of feeling like I was being interviewed by James Lipton, I didn't have an interesting answer. In fact, I'm still not sure what my favorite word of all time might be.

But for today, I'll go with perambulate. Or maybe vernacular because it seems relevant.

What is YOUR favorite word?
