Ten Favorite Words

(Number One in a Series)
Someone left the TE dictionary open (again) and a lot of the words escaped. So we asked our favorite female columnist Maggie Van Ostrand if she could loan us some until the dictonary people could send a new one. We asked for her favorite words or words that she doesn't often get to use. Maggie, ever the personification of perspicaciousness, sent us her words before we had time to rethink our request. We were very pleased with her choice since she included feckless - which we were wanting to borrow for the longest time. Maggie included an eleventh word just because that's the kind of person she is. (Or perhaps because lung is so short.) No definitions are furnished. Who do we look like...Reader's Digest? If you want to increase your word power - you'll have to do it with a dictionary. Just remember to close it.
Here they are:


Maggie Van Ostrand's Ten Favorite Words (as of July 27th, 2004)

phlegm, cachophonius, lithesome, perspicacity, feckless, bombazine, solopsistic, dimity, sonorous, lung and Peripetetic.
