TTT – Favourite Words

Top Ten Tuesday is featured by That Artsy Reader Girl. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

TopicFavourite Words

I love a funny word (not sure if they are funny to everyone though!) and I guess I’m going for mainly old English with these words but I love them!

Unto – archaic term for ‘to’ (archaic 🤣)

Kerfuffle – a commotion or fuss, especially one caused by conflicting views.

Malarkey – meaningless talk; nonsense.

Bibliolater – a person who is passionately enthusiastic about books.

Sumptuous – splendid and expensive-looking.

Fabulous (a word I totally overuse!) – extraordinary.

Yonks – a very long time (it’s been ages).

Mucky (how I like my books!) – mildly pornographic.🤣🤣🤣

Mucker (not to be confused with mucky at all) – term for a friend.

I do have a favourite English swear word too but didn’t want to put it here but that’s my number 10!!

  1. Kerfuffle and sumptuous are fabulous words! 🙂 I learned “mucky” from a TV show — I assumed it meant dirty (as in, needing to be cleaned) but the context made it clear that it was talking about a different sort of dirty! Really fun list.
