Favorite Word:

anhinga
I'm a musician. I like the pitch, inflection, beat of this word. Keep the second syllable sound flowing from the back of your throat before dropping pitch to the third syllable, and it sounds a little like the bird has been swimming underwater and has just bobbed to the surface. The word has movement. I like that.

Least Favorite Word:

blood
This word starts and ends with bluntness, and it has no fluidity. The word, itself, coagulates. I don't know if this is my least favorite word, but it is an example of the kinds of words whose sounds do not please me.
