Favorite words.

That's it.  List your favorite words - those words you love, either because of their meaning or just the way they roll off the tongue, or perhaps because of some complex association in which you place them..

Some of mine:

sarcophagus
vagabond
scintillating
Jurassic
panacea
troubadour
scansion
moratorium
anachronism
vaudevillian
omnibus
Byzantine
tumescent
dilettante
malfeasance...

Does it have to be a fancy word? Does it have to be the word itself or can it be attached to the image it conjurs?

Twilight is my favorite word
