The Ugliest Word

by Nicole on March 9, 2010

What is the ugliest word in the English vocabulary?

Way back in 1946, The National Association of Teachers of Speech compiled a list of the ten ugliest words in the English language. Those words were:

  • Cacophony
  • Crunch
  • Flatulent
  • Gripe
  • Jazz
  • Phlegmatic
  • Plump
  • Plutocrat
  • Sap
  • Treachery

Back in the 1990′s, the Book of Lists cited these words as the ten ugliest English words:

  • Aasvogel
  • Brobdingnagian
  • Cacophonous
  • Crepuscular
  • Fructify
  • Gargoyle
  • Jukebox
  • Kakkak
  • Kumquat
  • Quahog

So let’s take a vote..what is the ugliest word in the year 2010?
