I love the word metaphrast. It's lots of fun to say and the meaning is definitely interesting.
1. a person who translates or changes a literary work from one form to another, as prose into verse.
The word I hate isn't technically a word, but I really really do hate it when people write it. It's the word thanx. I just don't understand how the letter K and S are that much of a hardship that you have to replace them with an X. We can't be that lazy can we?!?
1. a stupid and lazy way to say thanks!! Don't write it ever again!!
