Words are beautiful because they have colour (see post on synaesthesia). Some words are prettier than others though!. Red, orange, yellow and green words are the best. I am very good at remembering incredibly complex and/or long words, along with their meaning. Synaesthesia aids my verbal memory because it is a natural mnemonic device. My favourite words are the following:
Euphoria – red
Elation – red
Rambunctious – red
Parsimony – predominantly yellow
Salubrious – white
Ataraxia – mainly green (this word means a state of extreme tranquility, the outcome of enlightenment)
Tergiversate – Black and red
Garrulous – dark green, but the middle is red
Bibulous – mainly black
Meretricious – part black, but the ‘e’ and ‘r’ lends it a hint of red
There are many more words that I like, but to list them all would take up a lot of space!
Unfortunately there are no purple or dark pink words in my colour palette. A shame, because they are both my favourite colours.
