    These are three words that are on my favorite words list:
    wan – this word really describes the gloomy atmosphere well
    infinitesimal – the pronunciation is just like the definition – infinitely small
    atherosclerosis – I like to say this like a harry potter spell, even though this word is a medical term

    ‘Autochthonic’ appears in Lawrence Durrell’s “Alexandria Quartet”, a wonderful novel, though sadly overlooked these days. The word equivalent is more prominent in Italian usage than in English where it appears in practical, day-to-day speech and writing.

    The word should be Autism because those people can’t handle somethings we can but have a higher IQ than us. People often get autism mixed up with retardation. Retardation can’t handle somethings like autism but have lower IQ than the rest of us. We are all still people alike but we are different in our own way.

    Ruthful – It’s an adjective for pitiful but it has a more empathatic leaning. It’s the opposite of ruthless – and seems to bring a better more noble bearing on the subject of the one being pitied.
