    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?
    Not quite as nice with a yorkshire accent :')

    I second 'ephemeral' and 'ethereal'

    Adding to that:

    i) melancholia
    ii) nostalgia
    iii) cerulean
    iv) summer
    v) euphoria

    These are my personal favourites
    :love:
    How could I have forgotten 'ephemeral'?

    cellar door??? yeahh it sounds nice when you say the words together...if you say it quickly it sounds Italian

    But I think there are nicer single words....like....

    Nostalgia
    Autumn
    Romance
    Obvious/Obviously
    Beautiful
    Wednesday
    Rainbow

    and I LOVE the word "doubt" just the way it sounds rocks!
