I woke up this morning thinking about words. What are the best words you know, that you almost never use in ordinary conversation or writing?

Some of mine:
  • inglenook
  • cardigan
  • saudade
  • inconceivable

I had to go to the dictionary for every word and thanks for them, whenever I find new words I try to use them somewhere in my manuscript, not every new word but ones I think can fit in, my vocabulary isn't that good because English is my second language and that I am too small.
I would definitely consider using them.

What's your first language, Destiny? Are there any words you love from that language? Words in any language are so cool.
