Favorite Word:

yes
There is one word- My favorite- The very, very best. It isn’t No or Maybe. It’s Yes, Yes, Yes,Yes, YES! “Yes, yes, you may,” and “Yes, of course,” and “Yes, please help yourself.” And when I want a piece of cake, “Why, yes. It’s on the shelf.” Some Candy? “Yes.” A cookie? “Yes.” A movie? “Yes, we’ll go.” I love it when they say my word: Yes, Yes, YES! (Not No.) Lucia and James L. Hymes, Jr.

Least Favorite Word:

prioritize
Would not 'priorize' be more to the point? What is this '-tize' fasc-ination? It just appeared one day, and everybody started using it with the intent of converting a noun into a verb. Same is true for "impacting." Weird. That came into being because no one knew the difference between "affect" and "effect." (merriam-webster.com says the earliest known use of "prioritize" was in 1961)
