Best Categories....
Now Playing: Quarashi - Mr. Jinx
Topic: Language?
By Which to Categorize The Greatest (English) Words.

Okay, here is a list (with examples of each) of categories into which the best words of all time fall into. It may take a while for me to do, what with all the revisions and such, but you won't notice because I shall post this when it is finished.

The first category would have to be 'descriptive feelings of anger' words. I believe the title covers it.
Examples of this would be 'loathe', 'disdain', 'hatred', and even sometimes the phrase "like Jesus hates an anti-Christ" (as long as it is the main thought of the statement, otherwise, it is not as useful or straight forward). Usually, these words can be accompanied quite nicely by 'perpetuated', 'unending', or even a combination of the two such as "A perpetual torrent of unending loathing is plaguing my mind by the sight of you now".

Next on the list would be the 'horribly long-ish descriptive' words. These are the words that, unless they apply well or you're trying to hit on a girl with a poem or something, aren't used very often in normal conversation.
Examples being 'iridescence', 'quintessential', 'irrepressible', 'nonsensical', 'perpetuating', 'inconsequential', 'inconceivable', and even the occasional 'unconditional' (as long as it is used correctly and not often). All of the words under this list will make you sound a bit more intelligent and sometimes hated by the world, and if they too share your intelligence, you may hear words that fit into the first category. If so, be sure to e-mail them to me so that I can enhance this list.

On to the next. 'The somewhat undefinable' words. These are the open ended words. Those words that you only say when you don't really have a definite answer. Or also when you don't want someone to know whether you have a definite answer.
Examples: 'possible', 'somewhat', 'maybe', 'should', 'could', and 'may'. All are excellent examples and are used so much in daily language that the extra description of them would be redundant.

And, the last category, 'alternate space filler' words. These are words that make almost anything said sound more eloquent and well stated and just basically make it so you can talk longer without actually saying anything.
Betting you want examples. Well, here they art: 'well', 'indeed', 'quite', 'grand', 'basically', and also, repeating a word twice is also a good example (ie. 'yes, yes, it is quite the grand idea', one rule on this is to not do it repeatedly within the same day. This leads to redundancy and people will begin to lose confidence in your ability to sustain your utmost eloquence.)

Overall, I believe I have set forth an awesome list full of grandeur and other words of the sort. Beyond that, I'm finished.

Thought: "Why is Catch-22 just about the greatest book of all time? It still hasn't lost me in the undeterred resourcefulness of my trying to finish it and I've been trying for a good 3 months."
