Now I have been a member of chess.com for a long while and I still have not written a blog. I feel it is my duty to add something to this wonderful website however pointless it may be, so here goes.

I am the sort of person who often takes a fancy to a word, so at the start of the academic year I started a list of these words in a notebook. I whip it out if somebody says an exceptional word and I add it.

You would be supprised how many people have favourite words of their own.

Anywho, lets me construct a list for you:

  • Frustrum
  • Asymptote
  • Ambulance
  • Ambiance
  • Bromide
  • Schism
  • Pudding
  • Abysmal
  • Bafflingly
  • Yerp
  • Paradox
  • Parallax
  • Parrallel
  • Smoggy
  • Kerfuffle
  • Googleplexian
  • Pernickety
  • Quantised
  • Disproportionation
  • Nomenclature
  • Bliss
  • Neophyte

 My list of "horrid words" is far shorter. Only four words long at the moment.

  • Nicely
  • Orang-utan
  • Belly
  • Gas

 Please bear in mind that I (dis)like the sounds of these words. There presence on the list has little to do with their definitions; however I'm sure the meanings probably swayed me. For instance I do hate monkeys and apes, and I like maths.
