My favourite word is Plunge. There are so many contexts and emotions associated with it. It can reveal brokenness of spirit, attest to bravery, describe the beginning of a love affair or an adventure. For example: plunge headlong off a cliff or into battle, plunge headfirst into his or her arms, plunge to the depths of the ocean, plunge one’s hand into the fire. Richard.

I had to google sesquipedalian, but that is an impressive word!

Danica - I also like the way smite sounds.

I'm a big fan of the word petrichor
