    Favourite & least favourite word
    Hi everyone,

    It was difficult finding a slot to post this question. I hope this thread is OK.

    We all have a favourite word and least favourite word and I was wondering which are yours.

    My favourite word is:

    'Serendipity'

    1. The faculty of making fortunate discoveries by accident.
    2. The fact or occurrence of such discoveries.
    3. An instance of making such a discovery.

    To me the word rolls wonderfully over the tongue.

    My least favourite word is:

    'Oncology'

    The study of cancer

    Not only is it concerning a terrible subject, I feel it is simply a horrible word.

    What are your favourite and least favourite word?

    Just one of each please.
