Assuage is a fine word. But what are its merits when compared to 'assegai'?

Diaphanous is another favourite.

I've got a Frederik Pohl novel by that name.

My favourite word is Brobdingnagian. I think it crops up in a lot of Philip Jose Farmer books.

meniscus
I found this word in DFL's story 'Candle Dreaming'.

It was an education to look it up!

Thanks, Marion. I love the word 'meniscus'.

BTW, I read aloud all three parts of CANDLE DREAMING yesterday (09/09/09) here:

It wasn't chocolate digestives, was it, Des? It's just that chocolate,' digestive, and biscuits are among my favourite words.
(notice I haven't shared those words on here - I don;t share the biscuits either).

I like Suggestive Biscuits! :)

Incidentally, I have a theory about candle-dreamng and eternity. Havin a real candle-dream is bad news, of course. Luckily the protagonist in the story, I suggest, was only dreaming about candle-dreaming.

'discrepant' = so much more loaded with clipped disapproval than incongruous or jarring or differing or conflicting.
