Some Words I Like

I keep an ongoing list of words that I like. There is no clear criteria for how a word might make this list. If I come across a word and it feels good, it goes on the list. The following are five words from my list:

Malarkey – meaningless talk and nonsense 

Tommyrot – nonsense or silly talk

Apocryphal – erroneous, fictitious

Cosmoline – brand specific name of a petroleum based lubricant

Raconteur – a person given to or skilled in relating anecdotes
