    Cunt

    No other language that I know of has a word as demonstrative.

    It still holds the highest taboo with the vast majority of people - long after bastard, twat, fuck and many others have become mainstream.

    Yet for some of us it is a term of endearment and used to great effect in the bedroom.

    Dear .___.

  • Specifically I like the long 'a' sound (as in 'way', 'say'), and the short 'u' sound (as in 'up', 'fun') which is also found in words like 'love' and 'some'. Oh and also the short 'e' sound, especially when followed by a 'r' or an 't' (as in 'water', 'planet'). But really, every word sounds good in a British accent.

  • the English pronounce English as it is intended. hence the name. stupid fuckin yanks

  • Ha, this merits an essay style reply. Surely by British you actually mean English, which is the language we speak.. :P

    At this point in time I can't think of anything more patronising than being asked what my favourite pronounced word is in English is or being told that I'm spelling words wrong with this joke of a spell checker.

    Take 'patronising' for example, this is the correct spelling. The incorrect spelling is 'patronizing', why you ask? It's because some old colonialists, whilst doing a shoddy job of updating the dictionary for Americans, literally just spelt (yes spelt, it's an alternative to spelled) words wrong, and those words were never omitted and corrected, true story.

    Soo I guess my favourite native word for the sake of this discussion would be:

    Sequester; I wish bad American spelling would sequester itself to the U.S. so I don't have to be told I'm spelling actual English words incorrectly!!!
