Ah! i’m obsessed with phonetics! They’re always changing, but my two current favorites are Spanish: frequentemente y abogado. The former means ‘frequently’ and the latter ‘lawyer.’

Shalalanovala since you mentioned Spanish…..
I have recently fell in love with the word Nosotros. (We)
It probably has to do with my higher feelings of interconnection these days.
Holofractographic is another one of my faves

Not sure of the source, but I heard that results from a study with non-english speaking participants concluded that diarrhoea was the most pleasant sounding word of a long list of words. It is pretty nice to say, the burst of the consonant D followed by a bunch of runny softness. Guess you could say it sure flows with the meaning.

I think love, or share. JR Tolkein says cellar door, which phonetically has a lot of depth to it.

According to philosophers Merleau-Ponty, speaking is a way of singing to the world. I wholeheartedly agree.

You should look into Wittgenstein, if you haven’t already.

@ryanj Now I think about it, diarrhoea is indeed, a really smooth-sounding word…

But another word I really like, is “Kaerlighed” which in the Danish word to say… Love !

Serendipity 

I find every aspect of this word delightful.  Imagine it spoken by The Good Witch in Lord of The Rings.

” Froto, I do believe you just met serendipity!!! Best be good to her, mind you; for only her affect and her memory truly lasts forever. The rest is what we make of it”
