The 100 Most Beautiful Words in the English Language
I came across this list the other day. Maybe there are some words here you recognise but I imagine there are a lot of new words too.
There’s no actual ‘best’ most beautiful word according to this blogger, as they are, quite rightly in my view, arranged alphabetically.
Here’s the first ten:
Ailurophile – A cat-lover.
Assemblage – A gathering.
Becoming – Attractive.
Beleaguer – To exhaust with attacks.
Brood – To think alone.
Bucolic – In a lovely rural setting.
Bungalow – A small, cozy cottage.
Chatoyant – Like a cat’s eye.
Comely – Attractive.
Conflate – To blend together.
Which words do you think are the most beautiful? Why are these words more beautiful than the rest? Is there any word that you think was left out (and you can’t right my name down)?
