My Favourite English Words

Standard

English is not my native language but I have almost mastered it, still the odd mistakes creeping in. 🙂

I love the English language it sounds warm and soft to me, unlike the hard sounding German language , my mother tongue.

There are some words in the English language which I cannot properly translate and they are such beautiful words:

 

Cherish– a wonderful word with a wonderful meaning –

1. To treat with affection and tenderness; hold dear: cherish one’s family;

2. To keep fondly in mind; cherish a memory.

 

Appreciate – another great word and I love the meaning –

1. To recognize the quality, significance, or magnitude of: appreciated their freedom.

2. To be fully aware of or sensitive to; realize: I appreciate your problems.

3. To be thankful or show gratitude for: I really appreciate your help.

4. To admire greatly; value.

5. To raise in value or price, especially over time.

 

Then there are the funny sounding words like fuzzy or furry.

They sound exactly what they mean like an onomatapoeia.

 

I put this on my bedroom door haha
