Favorite Word:

Schadenfreude
I'm part German. It's fun to say. I'm a lawyer and first encountered the word in a court opinion. As for the meaning, I always endeavor to follow the golden rule and moderate the experience, lest I be too oft the object of the Schadenfreude of others.

Least Favorite Word:

vitriol
I can't say that I have met a word I didn't like. So, I have to turn to the meanings of words to find a least favorite. I feel really bad when I'm the object of it, and even worse when I fail to avoid engaging in it myself.
