Define and Annotate your three favorite words. Give the definition and explain your choice.

Inconceivable—adj. Impossible to comprehend; a highly effective manner in which to either show that one is familiar with The Princess Bride and/or to flaunt one’s Sicilian ties.

Rather—adv. To some degree; somewhat; usage oft indicates sophistication far beyond that of any mortal; never used in the “I’d rather be doing x than y” format; always used in the “It’s a rather x morning, would you say, old chap?” format; used to show that one reads novels primarily by very British authors.

Aye—adv. Yes; a much simpler and less labor-intensive affirmative than “Yes” or “Yeah;” the surefire sign that one spends or has spent waayyy too much time reading C.S. Forester, Patrick O’Briend, etc….

I love the word inconceivable. It has such a strong tone, but a good ring to the word. Aye, I agree that it is much easier to respond as a sailor than to say yessssss. Too much s in that word.
