Definition: Speakfeel | spēkfēl | The full physical experience of saying a word or phrase out loud in isolation, often doing so repeatedly and with comedic emphasis. Word tasting.

Example words and phrases with subjectively assessed high levels of speakfeel:

  • Lull.
  • Monthly.
  • Plinth.
  • Pickle.
  • Dork, spork, and pork (but not door, spore, or poor).
  • Flux capacitor.
  • Cactus.
  • Speakfeel.

Good mixtures of plosives with lateral approximate seem to enhance speakfeelingness.

Conjecture: some words and phrases will have universally high levels of speakfeel.
