favourite words are "ramekin" and "galangal". They sound so delightful to my ear, and their definitions obviously stir a couple of other senses too.
A more recent contender currently watching from the sidelines is the word "synecdoche". I remember first seeing it as the title for a Charlie Kaufman film
(which I have not yet seen), and I like what it is
. If I raised its status though it would only make it a trinity, and not replace
either of the triumphant two.
RrrrrrrAMekin. GA-LAN-GAL! Mmmmm...
