Poetry Time: Words

February 8, 2011

Odd.

I use that word way too much. My new favorite word is

aberration

and I used to like

random

a lot when I was in high school (I still use it often, though).

There are a few others I find myself ashamed that I am constantly using, such as

like

some other four-letter words

but I really like

pontificate

because it sounds so pretentious and is used to talk about pretentious people talking.

My dad always likes to use

substantial

but I don’t really care much for it, although I find myself using it like it’s come to me through osmosis.

Osmosis

sounds good, is nice.

  1. “Osmosis” was the word my father used to explain any process that he didn’t understand (or that he didn’t feel like taking the time to explain — with him, it was usually hard to tell the difference).
