We all have phonoaesthetic faves. JRR Tolkien had cellar door, Gary Newman, in cars. In addition, there are phonohumoristic utterances like pickle, underpants, and cha-cha heels. Also recognizable are phonopotent words and phrases, like once I knew, epic, and atomic. This week, the landscape of speech is going to be tricky terrain. Outfit yourself with some sherpa- grade phonologisms. That way when someone puts a verbal mountain in your path, you’ll be sharp as a pick axe, confident as a mountain goat, and fearless of heights. The payoff: one hell of a view.
