    I take issue with the top word on your list. Adroit comes from the French word for “right”, as in “right handed”. It is the direct antonym of gauche, both in English and in its native French where it means “left”, as in “left handed”. As a non-right-hander I find both of these words to be handist and offensive.

    effervescent – exciting, giving off bubbles, fizzy.

  6. Caliginous is the color of my mind.

    Thanks for reminding me!

    Great list.

    I am reminded of when I was out to dinner with my spouse and another couple, and the other guy dropped his fork on the floor. As he leant down to pick it up he apologized, saying “Sorry, how gauche of me.” Quick as a flash, my hubby replied, “But how adroit you were picking it up.” That tickled my funny bone with the play on words (ref Jim above).

  11. Anil says:

    Libertine is my favorite, even if its not in the list.

  12. Spencer D. says:

    “adumbrate: to very gently suggest” – my dictionary says 1. to produce a faint image or resemblance of; to outline or sketch.
    2. to foreshadow; prefigure.
    3. to darken or conceal partially; overshadow.

    we all have special words we find meaning in…..
    words that make our hearts bleed….
    astounding, individuality, melodic, unique, grateful, unusual, touch, hug, love, friendship, family, radiant, patience, delicate. caress, creative, thoughtful, memories,reminising, friendly, smile,
    But depending on your intonation even words defined in a derogatory sense can be concidered beautiful…….
