Beautiful And Not So Beautiful Words

Reading through the webpage entitled: A Collection of Word Oddities and Trivia, Page 10 I was astounded by the complexity as well as the simplicity of the word found on the list of the beautiful words and the not so beautiful words. I agree some of them on the list may sound ‘beautiful’ but their definition may not be as ‘beautiful’ as it sounds. Take for example: murmuring–okay it may not sound beautiful to me but it’s on the list but I don’t think the definition of the word is all that ‘beautiful’ as it means:

  1. A low, indistinct, continuous sound: spoke in a murmur; the murmur of the waves.
  2. An indistinct, whispered, or confidential complaint; a mutter.
  3. Medicine. An abnormal sound, usually emanating from the heart, that sometimes indicates a diseased condition.

But anyhows it’s very interesting.
