I like "edderkopp" also except I am learning Norwegian right now. It still means spider though. Danish is very similar to Norwegian.

Hmm, off the top of my head, probably 朝ご飯 (asagohan), meaning "Breakfast," 青い (aoi), meaning "Blue," or 水曜日 (suiyoubi), meaning "Wednesday." I just like the way they sound.

In Swahili my favorite word is konokono which means snail. I also think lala is cool. It means sleep.

Cosa, which in Spanish means "thing". I sometimes use generic words, and when I don't know the appropriate noun, just fill in cosa and you're good to go! And in English, today I learned the word electroencephalogram, like my third or fourth twenty letter word!

Él ha cortado la cosa.

I can't use the word i like the most honestly it's profane but it comes with casual conversation amongst co-workers. But for a non profane word it would have to be esposas which means wives or handcuffs in Spanish.

Portakal (orange in Turkish) is fun to say. So is kedi (cat) because it sounds like kitty :-) I also like saying kaplumbağa (turtle).

Een meisje. A girl in Dutch. Also, any Dutch diminutive ending in "-je", e. g. een katje for a kitty. :)

French- Harfang des neiges OR Gentilhomme de neige. And to ride the coattails of a few others' comments slightly - Have you guys ever noticed that the word for "spider" in every language manages to be really cool?
