#1-Words That Sound Right
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.
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. Click the plus (+) button to zoom in, use the little up and down arrows to scroll through the list of cool words, and use the big up and down arrows to scroll through the pages. It’s in alphabetical order by your first name. Or, you can click here to open the list in a new window.
I call my grandparents gramma and grappa. I woud love to be one of your sisters friends so I could be there to see her get pouding dumped on her head and make fun of her then ditch her. So would you want to be your sisters friend for just that reason? Please answer.:-D
Except all the girls got pudding on them.

I DO like the word zany! in fact, I think YOU are zany for trying to impersonate my editor.

You could give it to me no
Nope. My mom forbids me.
