Beautiful words.

"Awkward" is an awkward looking word. The prevalence of those 'w's and 'k's make me embarrassed for it.

"Recommendation", on the other hand, is neat and concise. As is the word, "pop".


  1. did you hear the grammar girl podcast about funny letters? the k sound is one.

    what i like about awkward is how it looks in a traditional font. i dig the AWKWA. all those acute angles. it's a palindrome that didn't know when to stop. i don't like words like "inveigle".

  2. I have to get onto GG's podcasts. Is this her -
