• My favorite word in the entire English language would have to be igloo. It’s hard to pick a specific word to be my absolute favorite, but igloo is definitely in the top 5. Also, when trying to determine your

    • Dear Nick,
      I am intrigued by your post because igloo is also my favorite word. I love how it just rolls off the tongue. Igloo just sounds so weird but cool at the same time. I enjoy saying it as well.
      One thing that stood out to me in your writing was ” I don’t actually like igloos. Just the thought of sitting inside a dome constructed of nothing but ice with only a small opening as an exit is enough to make me feel claustrophobic.”. I think this is interesting because you love the word but hate what comes with it. I am also claustrophobic so I understand how it feels, but I think having your favorite word and something you hate associate with each other is very interesting and relatable.
      Thanks for posting,

    • Dear Nick,

      I am interested in your essay because I like how you think outside the box about your favorite word. One thing that stands out for me is:”, but it also makes me feel cold and makes me think of a frozen tundra.”. You don’t just talk about the way it sounds, you also talk about what goes in your mind when you say the word. I didn’t really notice this or look into this, but now that I think about it, I have a lot of different words that makes me think about different things when I say it. Thanks for sharing your post. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because your thinking is different from mine and I enjoy reading about what you think.

      Regards,
      Kyle

      Nick,
      I agree that it is strange to think that a set of letters can spark a feeling, like claustrophobia. It’s interesting that your favorite word provokes displeasurable feelings; the word itself is just too fun to say. It’s understandable to dislike igloos. They don’t really have anything going for them–just cold and confined. I like that you explain why you like the word, even though you don’t like what it is.

      Thanks,
      Sam

      Dear Nick, I enjoyed reading your post, reading about how specific words can be a trigger for feelings such as the feeling of claustrophobia or being cold is very intriguing because as you probably have never been in a igloo you still associate feelings and emotions with it which i found to very interesting.
