I think the coolest words are the onomatopoeias... words like swish, gush and sparkle.

Even the word oval, which not only sounds oval, but actually forces you to turn your mouth into one.

The cutest english phrase has to be 'baby bunny'... just saying it puts you in a good mood.

I suppose it very much depends on your mood at any given time. If you are feeling aggressive, then the onomatopoeia does come into the frame of things:-

whoosh! bang! wham! thwack! hiss! grrrr! thud! buzz!

Maybe the "baby bunny" thing, apart from its cute connotation, has its attraction because of its alliteration ....if this does not smack too much of affectation.

"Baby bunny" looses it cutesy ring when you're faced with a rabbit plague.

Yeah, Jim, you're right there.....rabbits breed like rabbits...still, they give my dog George a run for his money when he takes me out across the fields. Even so, their wee white bobtails are cute! As for squirrels galore, wee George will ha'e o learn to climb trees if he ever hopes to catch one.

You reminded me of that immortal poet Keats. He was not born to die. He lives in his words, in his odes, my dear friend, I love Keats.

Well, if we're having strewth then cripes, crikey, and particularly COR are going in surely. Cor as uttered in mid-twentieth century British comedy films when a man sees an attractive woman (particularly one in minimal clothing).

Well then... let's also throw in 'Zoinks', as uttered by Shaggy when he and Scooby-Doo saw a scary looking monster.

Some nice words there...

Ok then what about the ugliest word?
I'd have to say my ugliest word is 'probably'. It just does'nt sound right, whenever I say it makes me feel stupid for some reason.
