We all speak a language. 1 it is Hebrew, Spanish, Arabic, French, or some other 2 , it does not matter; we all have our favorite, our native tongue. Mine, 3 , is English. 

We 4 for granted that we have words, words which we can speak so 5 and easily—we know the denotations, and connota-tions, and general meanings of the words we 6 —but do we ever stop to consider their 7 ? 

Take, for instance, the 8 “Buttercup”. We think of a pretty yellow flower, and therefore the word is pretty. But is it 9 ? The harsh tones of “B”, “P”, and “T” make it an 10 word. The word may have pretty connotations, 11 the actual word is ugly. 

The word “Butterfly” was voted by foreigners to be the 12 word in the English language. The 13 were not told of the meanings of any of the words they heard, and they were told to 14 the meanings. The most popular guess: “Demonic being; Hell-dog; Satan. ” This may come as a shock, but after a moment or so, we begin to understand the 15 deformities of certain words in the 16 language—and also, the rare beauties. 

Think of the word “Slither”. We tend to 17 a snake, or a lawyer, perhaps. The word is elegant—no harsh 18 , only “S” and “Th” have any weight to them. 19 Butterfly, Slither is a beautiful word. 

Another 20 : “Ingenue”. An Ingenue is a foolish, naive(幼稚的) young girl. The word is rarely used, but it is a beauti-ful word.
