Top Ten Beautiful-Sounding Words

Too many lovely-sounding words for me to remember. If you have any more you know of, feel free to add :).

The Top Ten

1 Serendipity

Naw. I knew you'd be here:).

2 Quintessential

A quintessential example. Ironic:).

3 Radiant

Naw. 'Sjust me in mah beaver-felt bowler an' marine-iguana ropers:).

4 Resplendent

Naw. 'Sjust me in mah green gabardees; mah bonaroo britches; some danger-high-voltage slacks;).

5 Velvet
6 Graceful

Yup. That's me, with one foot in a paint bucket an' t'other in the toilet.

7 Evanescent
8 Eloquence
9 Lullaby

Wow..."lullaby" seems to have lost that beautiful sparkly melody it once had. BUT at least I know some useful (? ) facts I can pluck out of the deepest, darkest depths of my cobweb -infested brain to bombard unsuspecting members of the public with. And for that, I am truly grateful to you. Thank you, Sir ;). - Britgirl

From the Hebrew "Lilith abi! " ("Lilith stay away"), as an admonition from Jewish parents to the infanticidal succubus to not harm their children in the night. Kinda messes up the phonetic beauty, eh? ;).

OR, it could be taken from the nearly forgotten Lullubi tribes of Iraq c.3000 because. This would also, perhaps "serendipitously":), coincide with the generally accepted location of Eden, and, therefore, with the existence (or not) of Adam's first wife, Lilith, who alternatively is assigned blame for talking Adam into eating the Forbidden Fruit. Lilith, it is said, became a demon - a succubus and baby killer - owing to her rebellion against both God and her husband, and for engaging in bestiality as well as sex with demons. Probably why modern feminists love her so dearly. On t'other hand, could all be coinkydink. Whaddu I know? :).
