Words beginning with "N"

 

Nectarine.

The word of the gods, as soft and round and as sweet as it tastes.

David Tombs

 

 

Neologism.

Nascent words, or contexts in which a word is used.  Frankly, I just like the idea of a living language.

"Gee, Dave, I dunno, that painting looks a tad hinky over that couch."

Spot the neologism.

Joshua Estell

 

Neon.

Neon -- just sounds really cool.  Must be a genetic thing though, because when my 6-year old son heard it the first time, he repeated it and said, "Hey that's a cool word."

Angela

 

 

Nevus.

It is a congenital pigmented area on the skin, usually defined as a birthmark. Why I like it is because it can easily be worked into a faux name, like "Harry Nevus." You can really get dermatologists laughing when you drop that name on them.

I have also written a poem called "Rubbery Words" that celebrates a few of my other favorites. Go to www.clydepark.com/shortstor.htm stories and take a look.

Sears

 

 

Nuclear and Realtor.

Why? To my knowledge, I am one of the few who pronounces each correctly. There are only two syllables in realtor. The most popular pronunciation, of course, is "reelator." Also, there is not a vowel between the c and the l of nuclear, which is contrary to the all-too-common pronunciation "nukilur." Maybe these two words should be my "least favorites."

Ronda

 

 

Nurture.

I like this word because to do this in all respects is a wonderful thing :)
