    I was having a conversation earlier about good words (like with interesting meanings or just sound great!) with a teacher and I wondered what the oh so wise and mighty TSR community thought would be some interesting words!

    We came up with:
    -la fac (french meaning the university...no guesses why we picked that!)
    -le talkie walkie (french meaning walkie talkie)

    Can anyone else think of some (in any language)?

    Talkie walkie... I wouldn't expect less from French
    Uhhhhh I gotta rack my brain for this, I can only think of funny words and words I hate... you may as well hear those lol
    trabajaba - I was working (Spanish) it just sounds so funny!
    Choufleur is pretty funny, it means cauliflower in French
    proveedor - provider (Spanish) - I don't know, the double e just makes me cringe lolol (this is one I hate )
    I don't know why but I find Krankenwagen (ambulance - German) funny too lol and also a lot of other random German words, especially the long ones and my favourite GCSE saviour words when I have nothing to say - hilfsbereit and leidenschaftlich heheh
    Yaourter - search it up (French as you can see)
    Spleen is weird, in English and French (but funny that it means different things in both languages)
    I would say I have more but I can't think of any now haha, actually for Christmas a good friend gave me a book of cool words in loads of random languages so I could look at that lol

    I used a code box to stop the auto-separation of words every 32 characters or so. It's Sanskrit, it is many words functioning as one single word (more specifically, a closed compound).
