I agree on all of those, particularly "lambent."

Definatly formication.

The first time I read it, into my mind sprung an image of adept Havelock in Anele's position, muttering "formication!"

That would have to be "preternatural". I've never counted uses, but it's many, and it trips the mind while reading.

"... groaned"

Guess who? Yes, that's right. You won the toaster.

On the same subject: "Chosen"

I mean... How played is that, and it doesn't exactly roll off the tongue naturally in a battle: "Chosen! We must run for the hills!"

<laughing> I still think "fornication" when I read those pages... Can't help it... I have never heard of the word "formication" until I picked up Runes!



Well... It was used three times in The Wounded Land, and once in The One Tree...

But I don't like it either!

Carbuncle! And puissance got on my nerves as well.

As for Hellfire, i think that kind of sucks as a curse, but at one point Covenant says a pretty cool one, "I don't give a good Goddamn!"

Never heard Goddamn used as a noun before.

Add "sojourn" to the list. As a verb, SRD seems to think that means "travel" rather than "stay" (e.g., "Yet my sojourn through the seas to accompany you was slow and sorely painful to one who has been sent from his home in Elemesnedene."; or "While this sun holds, we will sojourn in daylight, sleeping only at night."), and he sometimes uses it transitively (e.g., "From the home and center of Elemesnedene, we sojourned all the wide Earth, seeking that which we have now learned to seek within ourselves."), even though it is intransitive.

Puissant! PUISSANT!!

Also: roborant (haranguing mechas fit not this universe), succor (sounds too much like sucker), theurgy, anything that excessively imitates Lovecraft; formication due to the all too easy m/n switch...and stiffen in context such as this:

I'll need to re-read the Last Chronicles to be sure of this, but I have the impression that in the Last Chroniclkes "roynish" dropped off the radar as a descriptor of ur-viles.

Funny stuff in here...especially the Linden thing for those silly enough to abhor Linden.

But here's a game for you haters:
Go back, find all the places your hated words exist, then rewrite the sentences without sounding like you aren't a really shitty writer...like the "See Spot run" folk, or the [adult...children are forgiven] readers who think this:

Quote:

I THINK that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the sweet earth's flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day, 5
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain. 10

Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

is "poetry" and not:
crap, poop, shite, BM, defecation, discharge, dung, excrement, excretion, fecal matter, feculence
SHIT.
[[there are more, need I go on?]]

"Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation."
the hyperbole is a beauty...for we are then allowed to say a little more than the truth...and language is more efficient when it goes beyond reality than when it stops short of it.
