I love this word! Partly because, for whatever reason, it's a sound I'm particularly good at, lol.

Just had to say that this one and the word previous each struck me. The one from the other day gave me definite Sherlock/The Woman fic ideas. :)

I just wish I had the time and/or motivation to actually write them - but I'll keep them in mind and will try!
