I was just looking at the below photograph by Robin Vincent and the word "apparition" came to mind. It got me thinking about how much I like that word. Aparition -A ghostly figure. Beautiful.

What about you? What words do you find beautiful, powerful, sad, ugly etc?


I like "glossolalia" and "exsanguinate" and "blunderbuss". I don't like "hottie" or "coupon" especially when it's pronounced, /ˈkjuː.pɑn/ (kyoo pon/pahn), or words in English that end in "-ola" like granola, canola, etc.
