Words words words… I’m a big fan, but I struggled with today’s QotD:
What are your favorite and least favorite words? Any reasons why?
My favourite words are fun to say, unusual and clear in their meaning and strength of emotion, words like: burbling, irksome, fret, joy, plush, decadent… good useful and playful wrods.
My least favourite words are harsh, graphic and cruel. I don’t want to list them.
Instead, I’ll list the adjectives that drive me up the wall when people are writing about food. The ones that are often vague, convey mediocrity and are inserted more for verboisty and word count than to convey any useful info: decent, good, not-bad, acceptable, okay.
Passion people, I want passion!
