The anti-onomatopoeia

Written by hootenannie on May 12th, 2008

Pulchritude.

Is it just me, or does the sound of this word NOT sound like the meaning?

I especially love that there are two pronounciations:

\PUL-kruh-tood\
– OR –
\PUL-kruh-tyood\

I prefer the second. Tyood… it’s just a little bit snootier. And only snooty people would use this word.

In that case, I’m totally on it.
