It's fun to read what words non-native speakers see as beautiful words in English! I'm not sure what mine would be, I'd have to think about that..Probably something very fancy :P

"Bliss" is probably the most beautiful English word for me.  :kiss:

Other words that I like are mostly words that are pronounced differently from their actual spelling like:

  • Rendezvous
  • Depot, and
  • Niche

I particularly like "Sonder", simply because of it's meaning.

Sonder

n. the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk.
