The Query

After reading the essay "My Idiolect," the Chapter wants to invite you to join the discussion or start a discussion of your own. For instance, a person's idiolect is the way he or she speaks--that is, the features most common in one's speech. Do you say the word "like" a lot? Do you use Spanglish or swap foreign words for English ones ? Do you say "I dunno"? These are all examples of your idiolect. Now, the Chapter would like to ask the following:

1. What is the most beautiful word in the English language?

2. What is your favorite verb or noun?

3.What is the sexiest word in Latin?


  1. The most beautiful word in the English language is mire.

  2. 1. The word "almost" intrigues me with its strange beauty.
    2. Compassion.
    3. Still working on this one.


What do you think?
