The Power of Words Tag

Another fun tag comes to rescue you all from my laziness. This is very similar to the Text Tag I did back in June, and all my answers are completely different this time! Thanks, Anna, for tagging me.


~Rules~

Thank the person who nominated you and give a link to their blog 
Answer the original 6 text-themed questions
Add a typography/word related question of your own for those you tagged to answer
Tag 6+ bloggers and let them know (via their blogs, social media, whatever)
Include these rules in your post

~Questions~

What Is Your Favorite Letter Of The Alphabet?
Hm. Besides I and Z that I chose last time, I enjoy A, F, and W. I like them in print, cursive, lowercase, and capital.
What Are Three Words You Love?
Sonder
Chanterelle
Cumulonimbus
Luminescence
Wanderlust
Opia
What Are Three Words You Hate?
Moist
Jugular
Epidermis
If You Were To Create A Word, What Would It Be?
Once again, I remind you have I created the word "tirspuchi" (tur-SPOO-chee) which means cow.
If I were to create yet another it would be "emiliant" (uh-MEEL-ee-uhnt) which means feeling happy and content for an unknown reason.
What Are Your Three Favorite Punctuation Marks?
~&?
What Are Your Three Favorite Fonts?
What's One Word That Means A Lot To You?
Duty. What came to your mind? Yeah, all of that's important to me.

Anna's question :If You Could Change the Spelling of Any Word (for whatever reason) What Word Would it Be?
Good question! I would use only the British spellings for words such as honour, colour, favour. They're so much prettier that way. And I would include the foreign look of every word that comes from a different language, so that we might remember that: dankë and café.

~Tags~

I tag those who have recently followed me. Blessings Counter, Krista Marie, and Ashley Nicole to name a few :) My question for any of you that choose to do this is:

Which presidential signature do you like the look of the most?
Mine's a tie between John Adams and Ronald Reagan.

I hope this was fun! What are your favorite/least favorite words? Did you know the meanings of all my favorite words? If not, you should look them up. They're all winners! Have a great weekend, everyone :)

    1. I'm glad! It's so hard for me to choose fonts because I rarely use any creative ones and I'm not that picky XD Presidential signatures are actually pretty cool. We have a mug with all of them :D

    1. Thanks! I think ~ are called tildes . . . ? They usually go over letters in foreign languages but I just think they're pretty :)

  6. I used to love Lucida Calligraphy. But sometimes it doesn't work. I think it can be good for writing on cards or titles, but for anything more it's a bit too stylized. It's got a flavour that is only good in certain places in a small amount.

    1. Lucida Calligraphy is still a go to for me when I need something scripty. I like that it doesn't have a whole lot of swirls and and embellishments around it. But it's true, I usually only use it in very large font sizes. It works best for titles :)

  7. With the question "What word means a lot to you?" the first word that came to mind was "Whimsical." It's such a beautiful name with an even more beautiful meaning.

    1. Oh, that's a good one! In order for me to truly love a word, I must love the way it sounds and what it communicates :)

  9. Sonder is a really pretty word now that I know what it means ^^

    And I like how you acknowledged the British spellings for colour, favour and honour ^^

    And when you said you created the word tirspuchi, I thought "I bet someone else has created it before," but then I looked it up and DARN IT you created it. How come the words I create are always taken? COME, ON! *cries*
