    According to the folks down at Dictionary.com, the most euphonious phrase in the english language is...
    Cellar Door
    Yep, thats right cellar door. Say it out loud. Feel the words leave your lips. Feels nice doesnt it?
    Now I was as suprised as I expect you are (unless youve read the article, in which case you wont be very surprised -_-). And I was wondering what TSRs favourite word/ phrase was. What do you think is the most beautiful word in the english language?
    :: points and yells :: Quote thief

    Great film though

    There was, and I repeat, there was not a sequel!

    Cellar Door sounds like C'est l'adore (It's the love)
    Suspicious or what?!?!

    My favourite words are:

    Denouement (once again french connections...)
    Ethereal
    Quintessential
    Tintinnabulation
    Wherewithall

      Why would you post Donnie Darko in a thread about pretty sounding words? :eek:
      Are you being sarcastic? :holmes: 'Cellar Door' is somewhat of a significant reference in Donnie Darko.

      Doesn't explain how they came to that conclusion

      Wikipedia says: "spare in clusters and full of liquids, nasals, and open syllables with cardinal vowel nuclei"

      makes sense now
