The 100 Most Beautiful Words in the English Language

The 100 Most Beautiful Words in the English Language

Lists of any kind with specified numbers (the 10 best, the 50 most…) both intrigue and challenge students (and adults!). At this link you will find a list of the 100 most beautiful words in the English language. This would be great fun as a start-of the-school-year challenge to students to have them notice language at a deeper level. Challenge students to notice and collect words they think are beautiful. And, what makes a word beautiful? The meaning, a memory or moment associated with the word, or the way that it rolls off the tongue? A good discussion in and of itself.

Have fun!
