A few of my favourite words in Spanish

One of the pleasures of learning a language is finding those words that are simply fun to say. It doesn't really matter what they mean - for me it is about the way they roll around the toungue. Here are a few of my favourites, picked at random,  but I am sure you will find your own as well.

peligroso/a = dangerous
menitroso/a = liar
crepusculo = twilight
penumbra = semi-darkness
melocotón = peach
amanacer = to dawn

Just a quick note for those new to Spanish - the o/a at the end of the first two words is to show that the ending changes depending on gender. So a man who tells lies is un mentiroso and a woman who tells lies is una mentirosa, for example.
