Rhythm - revel in its vowellessness!

Vowellessness - I just made it up.

Ghoti - maybe not officially English, but if you pronounce "gh" as in "tough," "o" as in "women," and "ti" as in "action," it sounds more recognizable. :-)

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

onomatopoeia - use of words that imitate the sounds associated with the objects or actions they refer to. For example buzz, whoosh, clang, rustle and my favourite thwack.

quandary - a situation in which it is difficult to decide what to do.

irascible - easily provoked to anger. (think pyrochild :) )

persiflage - frivolous or bantering talk.

The word I got banned from the PDN Chat for*:

melkchocoladehagelslagverpakkingsafsluitertjesfabrieksdirecteur!

(it's dutch, and is a long word for the boss of a factory that makes shutters for packages of milk-chocolate sprinkels.)

*Don't ask. Rather bust me in.

Great word and a really funny meaning but I can't believe you got banned for saying it in chat.

I know you said don't ask but who banned you for it anyway?

Firefox is the best! So is Relient K!

~96% of teens won't stand up for God. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 4% who will.

I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. Ezekiel 36:26

Bye Paint.NET!
