The word container ... now that's a marvelous one as it describes exactly what it is ... an object that contains something ... a receptacle for all sorts of things .... a Container

I think we must have quite differing views on what a pointless thread is

Depends if it's beef or horse. You never can tell these days.

I like onomatopoeia (pronounced: on-uh-mat-uh-pee-uh). It defines words that are spelt the way they are sounded. Like wow, and honk, boom.

Another one from me: Hapaxlegomenon.


It is used in linguistics, for example when somebody wants to know if a text has been tinkered with.

Rythm

You may have forgotten an "h" as in: rhythm.

My favorite word is nifty. Any of those 1920s words I like. But, nifty because I used it to make my youngest brother mad when he was in Kindergarten. He hated that word so much he would try, with his little 5 year old might, to punch me. It's a brother thing.

But, the word above all words, even above "kerfuffle" and "nifty" that I love the most with no question:

yes
You bet I'm pumped!!! I just had a green tea!!!
