Rather hungover. Short post. Just for fun. :)
Whilst reading the paper online this morning I discovered that yesterday was International Literacy Day. The Guardian marked the event by inviting readers to share their favourite words. Some of the responses interested me greatly and others made me laugh out loud. They all put a smile on my face.
Tomorrow I’m going to ask my pupils to think of their favourite words and create a fun display with them. Realise this is asking for trouble in some cases (it’s amazing the amount of synonyms some body parts have) but my room needs a new display and it’ll be fun to hear the kids’ ideas.
Today, however, I’d like to ask you guys what your favourite word is. Food related or not. Semantic reasons or just how it feels rolling off your tongue. I’d like to know. :)
Personally, I can’t choose between bubble and butterbean…
