My favorite word has mostly been *sword*. Everybody knows what this is. It describes a weapon used in most of my favorite movies and games. I like making comic books about the 12th century. In those times soldiers use swords. Swords are very easy to draw and a sword gives me a feel of action. Umm... I don't have anymore reasons for that word. Hope this is how you meant it.

Toast.

Why?

Toast can be used for eating and survival. If you had toast and plastic on a deserted island, the toast would save your life to wash down the plastic just eaten. Toast is NEEDED FOR SURVIVAL. How about that?

Plus, toast can be used as a verbal threat. "Jim, you're fired", "Oh yeah, well you're TOAST!", "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO0000000000000oooooooooooooo"

Take that.

Seeing as I'm a pretentious jerk who uses words that 90% of the population of the world wouldn't even be able to half comprehend, my favorite word is: COPROPHAGIA!!!!!!

What does that mean, you ask? It is the scientific(?) way of saying eating crap. Dirty, I know, but it's a great word to know if you write lyrics for a metal/punk band. Talking about politics? Call politicians coprophagists! Just trying to be edge yet intelligent? Coprophagia is the perfect word for you!

Other awesome(and similar) words are coprophillia (The attraction to feces), necrophagia (The consumption of corpses), and anus... Don't judge me.

I like the word: "a". We could barely speak English without it, like, "There once (a) chicken that died of (an) infection that (a) doctor doesn't know about. Your mom should be proud of (a) boy like you."

Soliloquy.

This word is a long uninterrupted speech by someone on stage. It has a nice ring to it. Don't you think?

Endeavour. Note: That spelling is correct to the Europeans, you special Americans like it with no "u"
Endeavour is my favorite POTC ship, my favorite way of describing an action or adventure (I will endeavour to succeed) and I like the way it rolls off the tongue.
Also, side note, Endeavour was Captain Cook's ship, a msall three masted frigate which sailed to find the length of Australia and instead found New Zealand. Why New Zealand is not Cookland or something of the like is beyond me.

bodacious

It's two words combined, audacious and bold.
Audacious meaning extremely bold or daring and fearless. Bold meaning not hesitating or fearful in the face of actual or possible danger.

Bodacious- remarkable, outstanding, excellent, admirable.

Bodacious is my favorite word becouse it sounds so awesome! Anyone who says it in any way will sound so awesome. It's bold, it's adacious, it's BODACIOUS!
