    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?

    But, to be fair, 'cellar door' does come out very nicely.

    I assume it's 'cellar door' because of the sounds it makes? Trying to work out what features in particular make it so :holmes:

    But isn't cellar door 2 words?

    I actually think "beautiful" is a beautiful word.
    If you say it admirably to a girl (not cheesy) her heart will melt. It's an impact word if you think about it.
