    Talking Sounds of words

    Okay everyone, it's time to engage your Se! What words do you find particularly striking or interesting in the way they sound? It can be good, bad, whatever.

    I've always found the word "sepsis" (blood infection, for those of you who don't know) to be quite stinging. All of those s's blended together with the p in the middle give it an eerie, deathly sound, which goes perfectly with it's meaning.

    Your turn.

    I like "uvula" because it sounds kinda dirty but its not.
    I'm never wrong, I'm just sometimes less right

    I like the word liason. Hate when people say per se. It just grates on my nerves every time.

    Haha. I remember watching a TV show or a YouTube video or something where one person kept saying "moist" and it was freaking the other person out.

    Ooh ooh... globular is fun to say.

    Also, I wonder how a person with a lisp would say "aesthetic." Would they try to divide the word to be "aeth-thetic," or would it be more of a blend like, "aethetic?"

    You sure it wasn't the words that turn you off thread?

    I intended for it to be words of all kinds, but I started off with one that sounds evil to me.
