So, I’ve done the 100 most beautiful words in the English language.

Feedback from that is many of the words were downcast or woebegone (see what I did there!).

I enjoyed the 100 most beautiful words, and it’s time for something a little more upbeat!

The Atlantic recently had an article about the 200 happiest words. I’ve used that as a basis for the next hundred words. This next list certainly won’t be a literary, but it is my hope that you will enjoy this new, more colourful journey!
