Unlike symphonies or artwork, words convey meaning rather than being beautiful. As a result, judging a word’s “beauty” can be challenging. We can be charmed by a word because of its sound and meaning. Good-sounding words like “freedom” and “peace” aren’t included since the concept, rather than the phrase, is so appealing.
We picked words with a lovely, unique, or amusing tone, as well as words that just look cool And, as we all understand, true beauty of the observer, thus a word’s “beautiful” is subjective; you may find other words to be far more appealing. A few of our personal favourites are as follows: (in no particular order). You can also learn more about word beautiful like how to say beautiful in different langauges.
1 – Sibilance
Sibilance is the term for the hiss-like sound made by the letter S, or comparable sounds like a low C. There’s a lot of sibilance in the sentence “seven suspicious snakes. The fact that the word itself has some sibilance earns it bonus aesthetic points.
2 – Tranquility
What is it about the “qu” sound, whether it is used at the start of a sentence or in the midst of a sentence that we find so appealing? “Tranquility,” which refers to the condition of being quiet or serene, is a word that sounds tranquil when spoken, thanks to the smooth consonant sounds and a mixture of long and short vowels in the word.
3 – Loquacious
The dreadful “qu” sound appears again again! A significantly more pleasant-sounding way of characterising someone who is talkative or chatty is “loquacious.” In fact, we wouldn’t mind someone possessing this trait if they employed a large number of wonderful phrases like this!
4 – Epiphany
Is there another delightful sound in the English language to discover? The “F” sound of a “ph” is a slightly toned-down “F.” A quick and deep insight or thinking is referred to by the term “epiphany,” which is preceded and followed by the letter “E.”
5 – Vellichor
There’s a regal tone to it with the “V,” double-L, and punctuating kor (not “chor,” as you may think). What’s the point, anyway?It’s just as cool as the original. A reference to the alluring mystique of a used bookshop may be found here.
6 – Aurora
The fact that this was picked as the name of a princess from a fairy tale speaks a lot about how important this is. It was originally used to refer to the Roman goddess of the dawn. But make no mistake: “aurora” is more than just a proper word in this context.
A natural display of lights and colours occurs in the sky when radiation emissions cause a natural display of lights and colours to occur. (It’s possible that the phrase is a bit lovelier than the word itself.)
7 – Petrichor
The “-chor” suffix makes an appearance once more! It makes the magnificent word “petrichor” when joined with the other letters, which alludes to the peculiar aroma that the air and ground take on after a shower. Another set of wonderful, seldom used words that we believe should make a comeback are listed below.
8 – Blossoming
The fact that it’s such a simple (and pretty common) word may cause us to lose sight of how beautiful it is on its own, apart from its flower connotations. It’s wonderful on its own, but adding the “ING” to the third letter makes it into a dactyl—a stressed letter followed by two unstressed ones, “duh-duh-duh,” which improves the flow even more.
9 – Serendipity
This one has a nice beat to it, and the pop of the “D” and the “P” sounds make it a lot of fun to pronounce as well as listen to. As an example, the name “Serendipity” was chosen for a high-end New York City restaurant by chance. Despite the fact that its connotation, which relates to good fortune or pleasant occurrences, may have been an inspiration for them as well.
10 – Panacea
Another gorgeous term with an equally exquisite connotation is presented here. A panacea is something that has the ability to heal or cure anything, or, more broadly, to solve any problem at any time. It is most frequently used in a theoretical sense, as in “This law may help matters a little, but it is by no means a panacea.” It is derived from the name of a Greek goddess of healing, which you may have guessed.
