Hablando de Palabras or Talking about Words

This is the title of a selection used for an FCAT practice which I particularily enjoyed because it curiously identified one of the things I enjoy most about language. That is how it sounds. The article focused on a lady who enjoyed funny sounding words. My dad was the same way but he would say these funny words randomly and I guess I take after him, but only in the enjoyment of some particular words. Since I am bilingual, most are in Spanish with African or some Taino roots, the language of the indians native to Puerto Rico, though I am sure I have some in English. This is just a start.
