Words That Sound Right (The stuff on this webpage was mentioned on page 105 in my book.)


I like words.

Well, duh! I write books.

I like the word speedily. It’s one of those words that sounds like what it means…at least to me. Some others are gargoyle—sounds monstrous and evil; lizard—sounds scaly and fast-moving; and carnival—sounds bouncy and fun.

I am building a collection of words like this on my website. If you want to add one to my list—and I don’t mean obvious words that imitate sounds like buzz or plop or fizzle—please enter it below.

Oh…and I’m not looking for the real definition of your word. Please write down the definition that you think makes the word  sound like what it really means…like I did above with gargoyle, lizard, and carnival.

    Tell me what your cool words are!

    Your First Name:

    Your Last Initial:

    Your Email Address:

    Your State or Province:

    Cool word:


    If I really like your suggestion, I’ll put it in my list below (with your name alphabetically), but it might take me a while, because my mom says homework comes first.

    If yours is a made-up word, it will be in  italics…like the first part of this sentence. It’s in alphabetical order by your first name. Or, you can click here to open the list in a new window.

      1. Hey, Cheesie, let’s start the tree house we never got to make. Meet me at the tree in five. Also, Goon said your a green booger. After the tree house we can make a slime missile or something. Also, the word that comes to mind when you say irritating ( your mum said she is irritated because you did not study for the Maths Test tomorrow ) for me is that you have a scratch you cannot reach, or irritating also reminds me of your sister. 😀 hahahaha anyway see ya in five at the tree!

        From your best mate ( georgie! )
