I saw someone use the word 'yummy' today and I shuddered involintarily.
'Yummy' is a word I never use.
To me it sounds childish and immature, like baby words that are designed for children who don't yet have strong command of language. Even worse, it actual elicits a bodily reaction out of me- it sickens me.
Why would I ever say yummy?
I favour delicious, luscious, toothsome, scrumptious, enticing, delectable, succulent or even nectarous or ambrosial (although, admittedly, those would be used on rare occasions.)
Are there any food words that make your skin crawl? What words do you dislike using/hearing?
