My Word Lists
To me, this word suggests optimism and promise. It is not itself necessarily positive; but it sounds positive to me, and I choose to accept it that way.
Least Favorite Word:
It sounds like it has objective meaning, but it does not; and it often crowds out or replaces a description or term that has a more accurate and useful meaning.
