words

One of my high school English teachers once said her favorite word was crepuscule, twilight. Then recently I read or heard someone say it is the worst word in the English language. Whom to believe? Twilight, l'heure bleue; makes me think of that period just before it is truly dark, when there is still the possibility that a great calm is awaiting us . . .

monk makes crepuscule sound as lovely as what it reflects...i do not believe i have ever used crepuscule in a sentence in speech - not too surprising as i'd probably slaughter its pronunciation

It's definitely one of my favorite words in French...might it seem a little affected in English?

Fun Monk video.

I don't think I have a favorite word. I like saying penultimate.
