Power of Words Tag

Hey all! I was tagged for The Power of Words tag by the illustrious Liz from Out of Coffee, Out of Mind! Thanks so much, Liz! 



Ze Rules
1. Thank the person who nominated you and link to their blog.
2. Answer the original six text-themed questions
3. Add a typography/word-related question of your own for those tagged to answer.
4. Tag six or more bloggers and let them know. (hahahahha)
5. Include these rules in your post.

Look at that, I’ve already done two out of three. I am so on top of things.

What is your favorite letter of the alphabet?
Ehh... I don’t really have one anymore. In elementary school, my favorites were C, J, and M (though I have absolutely no idea why, as only my last name has anything to do with any of those letters). But right now... I don’t know, I kinda feel like all letters are created equal. We could say “A,” though, if you like.

Three Words You Love?
Chocolate. Star Wars. (Kidding, not kidding.)

Three Words You Hate?
It’s Quiet Uptown.

If you were to create a word, what would it be and what would it describe?
Ugh, I know I did this once—maybe even twice—but I can’t remember it! Ugh. Well, for now, I’ll just go with voicey: a description for a book whose narrative is chockful of cheek, sarcasm, and/or that character’s unique voice.

Three Favorite Punctuation Marks?
Em dash (—) Semicolon (;) Ellipsis (...)

Three Favorite Fonts?
Times New Roman, Playball (which blogger sadly refuses to show. But it's cool, trust me), Georgia.

Bonus Question: If you could change the way one word sounded, which would it be and how would it sound?
“Genre.” I would change it so it would be okay for Americans to pronounce it in American instead of French, lol.

Bonus Question: Do you know of a word that looks better than it sounds?
Umm... no, can’t really think of one. Apologies.

Heather’s Question: What are three words you mispronounced when you first said them aloud because you’d only ever read them before?

STORY TIME!

So my mom is always laughing at me me and my sister (who reads more than enough to start her own book blog), because we are constantly pronouncing words wrong because we’ve only ever read them before and we say them in a way that sounds logical to us... but apparently isn’t to other people. Anyways. Since you asked specifically for three: Chiron, Elongated, Hermione (I’m still not sure how to pronounce that last one, because honestly, I don’t think I even tried. Just kinda stamped her face in my head whenever her name came up in the book).

And Liz’s Question for her lovely humans: What are three words you used incorrectly in your youth (youth being anywhere from a week to eighty years ago, give or take)?
See, I actually have this horrible fear of using a word incorrectly and looking dumb because of it, so I almost always make sure I know what a word means before I say it or use it in a post or anything. So, even though I probably have done this at some point, I can’t really think of a time right now.

And that’s the tag! For my part, I tag Jessi, Shar, Grace, Monica, Ally, and Charisma. Don’t feel obligated if you don’t want to, but if you do here’s the tag! And I actually have two questions for those who choose to do it (and if I didn’t tag you and you want to, feel free), because that is the sort of person I am. Question 1: What are the most powerful words you’ve ever heard? (could be something someone said to you, a word that just sounds powerful, or a short motto that inspires you.) And Question 2: Can you think of a book title that has at least 5 of the words you mentioned throughout your tag? (if you can’t, make up one. I think this’ll be fun.).

Can’t wait to hear from you all and I will see you in the comment section!

  1. What would be the american way to say genre? (john ruh, jen ruh, jenner, jawn rer?) #confused. Thank you for the tag! Will do sometime, hopefully. And I mispronounce words ALL THE TIME. It's so annoying and I am mocked by my unkind parents and siblings (who could totally have made the same mistake) urgh.

    1. lol, honestly, I have no idea. (maybe gen ree?) I just included it because I couldn't think of anything else, and my little sister refuses to pronounce it correctly, so it was really the only thing that came to mind.

      SAAAAME. It's just proof of what great readers we are, lol. That we know so many big words that nobody's saying.

      You're welcome!

  2. ...But how do you want to say genre? I am so confused. Isn't there the only one way to say it? Explain yourself, heathen.

    When I was younger, Greek Mythology tripped me up, too. Aphrodite and Persephone were probably the first of the group to humiliate me at the dinner table. Thank goodness for online sound recordings of pronunciations.

    Nice word choices! :)

    1. Haha, like I said to Shar, I really don't know. I just included it because I couldn't think of anything else and my little sister refuses to pronounce it correctly. Maybe gen ree though

      Yeah, I definitely got those wrong too. :p lol, yeah, those are definitely helpful.

      Thanks!

  3. Thanks for the tag! I need to get around to doing this.

    Haha, I think I have quite a few answers for Heather's question, but she tagged me too, so I'll have to answer them in my post :)

    But yes, chocolate is an excellent word choice. Chocolate is an excellent choice period. Now I want chocolate.

  5. I have never heard that word phrase before. O.O But I do love voicey! :3 That was great! I Googled what the Playball font is and it is really pretty! :P (So many faces.. lol)

    Thanks so much for tagging me! I just have a few questions. So do I answer all the questions you answered (including the bonus ones), then your additional questions would be in place of Heather and Liz's questions? Or is there some other way that I just don't know about? :P

    1. Haha, which one? Thank you! Glad you enjoyed! :D Isn't it though! (lol, I totally understand. :p)

      No problem! And that's a really good question, but honestly, I have no idea. It's your version of the tag, so just pick whichever ones you want to answer. As long as you answer mine. I do need you to answer mine. ;)
