  1. 0:50 It would be more common to refer to wine as "sparkling" rather than "effervescent". Champagne and prosecco for example are described as "sparkling wines". When referring to soft drinks like Coke or Pepsi, they're generally referred to as "fizzy drinks" in the UK. In some areas of the UK such drinks are referred to as "pop".

  2. 1:37 "Lithe" simply means "flexible" or "supple". It's got nothing to do with being young, healthy or attractive.

  3. To me the word unforgettable is a very beautiful one. Or memorable. But there are so many beautiful words in English. Teardrop, the white springtime flower.

  4. You might think it’s a beautiful word to hear but I not quite sure that sound is concurrent with the meaning I’m familiar with.

  5. My favorite words in English are:

    -angelic
    -serendipity
    -mesmerizing
    -intertwined
    -precious
    -fragile
    -tranquill
    -controversal
    -euphoria
    -surreal
    -affection
    -miscellanous
    -etheral

  6. And I stumbled into this YouTube channel through serendipity . Very useful lesson by an elegant and very demure lady Lucy 😊❤️.

  7. The English is Germanic – Cold language! Nothing like Normandic Or Latin , Slavic spoken language , beautiful musical singing words and much more frequencies of Earthy, Mother Nature …..

  8. I didn't liked these words but the idea is amazing, I really love the idea and that's is something that I would be also talking if I have a channel. P. S I loved the two last words!!!

  9. Hi, Lucy Madame. I am a South Asian speaker of english who watched your videos recently. Really amazing! I recall a sentence : A good teacher can make even boring lessons interesting. I feel archaism in some words that you had mentioned in this video. Eg: Lithe

  11. Who cares the beauty of English words when a most beautiful girl is speaking in front of you. She makes everything beautiful.

  12. Can you also explain the parameters for deciding whether these words beautiful or not? Do you think they "sound" good or is it about the meanings, or something more different from these?

  13. Wow! It's been an amazing 3 years. You've been so young here. Oh god! An amazing transformation. Hoping to see a lot in near future

  14. >>Lithe: The past tense of the word "lathe". Example: "hey Phil, can you turn down that 50mm bar stock to 35mm on the lathe"? Phil: "it's already finished Sam. I done 'lithed' it yesterday morning"! Lol

  15. needless to say that none of them are english words in the first place ..7 out of 10 are just loans basically from latin

  16. A surprisingly high proportion of those word actually describe you and your channel ( and the way I happened upon it )

  17. 1. jeopardy
    2. gorgeous

    that the ones which came to my mind at once. But there may be a few more. Maybe I'm going to add them later on.
    3. seredipity is a good one for me as well.

  18. Most words people are listing are just loan words from Latin, not real English. Go and study a Romance language if you like looong posh words that make you feel all better than folk around you

  19. No offence, but the "slutty ASMR" vibe of this video made me cringe. We know you, Lucie, you can do so much better than pretend to be one of them brainless plastic dolls!

  20. Elision is ugly imo. Just throwing that it there. Wdd we effervescent is a sweet one. Live is gay. Mellifluous is my favorite word of all time. Then resplendent then ethereal. gorgeous words. They taste simply scrumptious. ❤️❤️❤️
