It can be in any language that suits your fancy.

Mine's "queef." I've always loved that word. My friends and I laugh about it for hours. Just the sound of it makes me smile ;)

I've always liked the word 'equilibrium', also it's meaning, ofcourse if I sat down and really thought about the question there'd be dozens of words I should list, so it's better I don't. :)

In Belgium they did a little poll

The word 'GOESTING' was chosen to be the prettiest word in Dutch...

In French it means : avoir envie de
In English it means : desire


(btw... my bad reputation points are due to one poster who's trying to give me a bad name... hope you are all mature enough to understand I'm not that bad... ;))

I judge by posts, not by rep. I think the whole rep system is a bit unnecessary anyways. :)

I love French people saying "Streichholzschachtel". It's very difficult to pronounce for them. Generally I love to hear French people talking German. It sounds so funny! :lol: :lol:

Some of my favorite words:

Votre âme est un paysage choisi
Que vont charmant masques et bergamasques
Jouant du luth et dansant et quasi
Tristes sous leurs déguisements fantasques.

Tout en chantant sur le mode mineur
L'amour vainqueur et la vie opportune
Ils n'ont pas l'air de croire à leur bonheur
Et leur chanson se mêle au clair de lune,

Au calme clair de lune triste et beau,
Qui fait rêver les oiseaux dans les arbres
Et sangloter d'extase les jets d'eau,
Les grands jets d'eau sveltes parmi les marbres.

This poem of Paul Verlaine inspired this to Claude Debussy:

tNoSB1E7tYE

Verlaine wrote to Debussy: "Why did you need to put music on mine?" ;)
