It's a language thing...

A few of us were inspired by the "It's a texture thing" thread to consider whether the names of things influence how you perceive/react to the thing itself.

I gave the example of "potato," which is such a darn cute, plump, soothing word, as compared to "urchin," which sounds like retching. Someone else mentioned "kreplach," heh. Etc.

Thoughts?
