#MyFavouriteWord 2015

It’s that time again...

October 16 is World Dictionary Day, which each year marks the anniversary of the birth of Noah Webster, one of the English language’s foremost lexicographers. As you can probably imagine, Dictionary Day is something of a highlight of the HaggardHawks calendar, and alongside a few other developments in the pipeline this month, it’s time for the return of #MyFavouriteWord.

If you’ve been following the @HaggardHawks Twitter feed for a while, you’ll know that this time last year the call went out for everyone to write down their favourite word, take a picture of it, and tweet it using the hashtag #MyFavouriteWord (spelled with or without, as Webster would have preferred, the U in favourite). The response was superb: your words were not only written down, but calligraphed, photoshopped, collaged, put together using Scrabble tiles, and even embroidered.

All the pictures were collected together and uploaded to the HaggardHawks Tumblr page in one enormous gallery of people’s favourite words—and this year, we’re doing it all over again.

So at any time in October feel free to write, type, print, draw, paint, cross-stitch, tattoo, 3D print (or whatever your preferred medium might be) your favourite word, and tweet a picture of the results to @HaggardHawks, with the hashtag #MyFavouriteWord. Entries will be retweeted every so often  in the weeks to come, but again all of the words received will be added to the Tumblr page to build on our gallery of beautiful, meaningful, brilliant words.
