Favorite Word:

babble
Very few words actually sound like what they mean. I like the cadence in this word. Babble, bubble, blather, they are amazingly self-descriptive.

Least Favorite Word:

onomatopoeia
It's a disappointment. For all it's intellectual meaning, this word about a word sounding like what it means, should have been more illustrative of the concept. Instead it sounds contrived. Maybe in Greek it makes more sense. But not to my English ears. In fact, all the rhetorical device names are irritating in that respect. Irritate, there's a good word. Sounds precisely like what it means.
