Inspired by Deshoda’s list of “100 Most beautiful words in the English language”, I have compiled my own list. The words I have chosen are more common than Deshoda’s so I haven’t defined them.

Perhaps someone should point out to Deshoda that there are 103 words on their list. Three for luck perhaps. I did choose one of them for my own list, viz.“serendipity”, and then I decided to delete it on account of the title I came up with. 19 words begin with the letter ‘c’ and 22 with the letter ‘s’.
