    I like the words for sounds, at times. Like my name on here, or VROOM VROOM... onomatopoeia, I believe is the term.

    The word "like", however, when used as an adverb, noun, verb, adjective, pronoun and conversational filler makes me want to utilize duct tape in a creative fashion.

    I hate the word "erotic", because I think it's the ugliest way to say porn. On the other hand I think "porn" (or especially the Dutch version "porno") is a much better word, because the sound suits the meaning much better. It's harsh and blunt, and the Dutch version has a sound filled with testosterone.

    There is a qualitative diffeence between erotica and porn. I once read that the American settlers rejected erotica as a decadence of the European nobility and late replaced theidea of the erotic with the concept of sexy (yet another thing altogether) and that this was one of the cultural differences. You are right though, the term is much abused and maybe Dutch culture prefers the rustic, earthy meat and potato version. I live a few kilometers to the southeast, but I think it would fit. The Dutch language rocks, by the way..en moie taal!

    Dutch people use the words "erotiek" (erotica) and "erotisch" (erotic) too. I hate those words. I prefer the term "keiharde porno".

    Another favorite: Predilection. The sound of it is like a well-phrased bar of percussion.
    Another non-favorite: Gubernatorial. It sounds like it has the word "goober" in it, which I find incongruous.

    NOTE: I don't much like "incongruous," either.

    I like the word "croissant". It sounds like a croissant. I also realized I hate the word "tapenade". Sounds yucky.

    Favourite words come and go with me.
    Disliked words: mucous since it sounds as disgusting as what it describes. Ew.

    I hate it when people say someone is "hot". Any other word is probably fine.

    I love words! I was one of those freak children who read the dictionary and thesaurus for fun...

    Although two words (well three actually...) that absolutely make my skin crawl are "moist" and the term "making love" or "make love" to reference sex, urrrghhhh *shudder* they just make me feel wrong....

    Terrible things happen to good people every day.
    Consequentially, I am not one of the good people.
    I am one of the terrible things.

    The staggering misuse of the word 'like' in the series 'My So-Called Life' forced me to disgust it or, at least, certain ways to use it.
