Found this on Pinterest - had to share!  
Below the cut is a list of "The 100 most beautiful words in English."

If you made a list, would these be on it? What else would be there?

I have long loved Plethora.

Plethora is awesome! So is Zaftig!!!

I'm very fond of circuitous. I like the way it sounds and how descriptive it is.

:-)

Also, I like Zaftig, I would add that.

Minutia is one of my favorite words. I love to say it, and I love its meaning. I would add it to this lovely list. Thanks for sharing!! : )

Minutia is a great word! It rolls of the tongue!

I am very fond of cacophony. I love the sound of it and how descriptive it is.

Aw, Kaige beat me to it! Plethora is my all time favorite word, always thought it was beautiful.

Plethora is awesome!

I love the word gazebo. It's such a pretty word to me, and the structures are always so charming!

(I also like charming as a word!)

I think cupcake should be added to the list ;-)

Cupcake!!! It totally should be there. How could they leave it off? That's an abomination!

Abomination is a good word. I also like cataclysmic although both have negative connotations. Let's go back to enjoying Cupcakes!!!

Yes, enjoying Cupcakes is the way to go!

They only list one of my top four beautiful words.

Child (Be they furry, scaly, or humanoid)
Family (Adopted, Married, or by blood)
Friend (The person who helps you bury bodies)
Love (The feeling all three of these inspire. A feeling blind to race, religion, sexual preferences, Political standing, and socioeconomic status)

Yes, I am feeling philosophical right now. I think it is a side effect of venturing into a new genre of writing. (Dystopia does things to the mind and heart.)

Love these additions! They are excellent!

I couldn't possibly write dystopia. I'm far too much a Pollyanna in my writing!)

Perseveration might be helpful to your dystopia?

Thank you for reminding us of these beautiful words!

Globule, Coagulate, Pontificate, Emulate, Miffed, Whisper, Erotic and Thaumaturgy to name just a few that I think should be added!

Interesting list. I love words. I like myriad, gestalt, euphonious, pusillanimous, panoply, scrumptious....so many good words! :-)
