The 18th June is the day of the Spanish language, and for the last couple of years this has been marked by speakers and students of Spanish choosing their favourite word. Some people like words with positive meanings, like “solidaridad” and “amor” whilst others go for the sound of the word itself, like “meliflua” and “murciélago”.
My favourite Spanish word is “azul”. It has a long, breathy sound like the wind. It also happens to be one of my favourite colours.
