To celebrate World Dictionary Day 2014, we asked our followers on social media to submit images of their favourite words to mark World Dictionary Day, the anniversary of the birth of lexicographer Noah Webster, on October 16. 

All the submissions—every photo, painting, collage, screenshot, cross-stitch, stencil and personalized artwork—are collected here. Submit your choice over on Twitter by tagging @HaggardHawks with the hashtag #MyFavouriteWord (spelled with or without the U, as Webster would no doubt have preferred) and we’ll add it to the gallery below. 

Leading the field at the moment is kerfuffle, with archipelago and petrichor not far behind.
