    If you love the English language as much as I do, you would undoubtedly have a favourite word. For me, it’s temerity, which means excessive confidence or boldness. What is yours?

    Tomorrow

    This is a word for those of us who procrastinate

    It is also another word which really describes when the future will be here

    It is also a word every parent and grandparent uses

    It is also a leap of faith

    The other word I like is Today

    It is alive, living, present which we can share with others

    So enjoy…………

    This is certainly the word I use the most.

    I would also throw in cahoots. A lot of people don’t seem to like this word for some reason but I love it. For those that don’t know, it means colluding or conspiring together secretly.

    Hmmm… mine would have to be “beautiful” – not very original, but I think it is what it means :) On Facebook Steve Miller suggested “serendipity”; on Twitter, @ThinkSimpleIT said “spurious”, and I like @SimplyDiligent’s word:

    Complete: adj. a great feeling when you have accomplished a massive #business task or one you just disliked.

    Ahhh words, words, words :)

    The word “actually” doesn’t exist in Spanish.
    It in fact to say “actually” you need to use like 5 words.

    Also It makes me smile the way the word “love” is used.

    I love cookies.
    I love you.
    I love Flyingsolo.

    In Spanish you will be using 3 different type of words to each “love” category.

    ;)

    My wife and I are on a mission to make our favourite word more mainstream, but sadly, decorum (and moderators) prevent me from writing it here.
