Some words are just special. Not for any particular reason, just because they sound nice. Or repelling.
These days, one of the words I’m especially fond of is in the news for a bad reason.
A Norwegian Hercules plane has crashed into Kebnekaise, the highest mountain in Sweden.
Kebnekaise, from Sami Giebmegáisi or Giebnegáisi, and means “Cauldron Crest”.
It is so beautiful…
And so dangerous.
And the word has sent shivers down my spine ever since I was a kid.
Funny what a simple word can do. Even if it doesn’t mean anything special.
I also like the word mulligatawni. And tush.
Just the sound of them.
