It's not that I like or dislike a particular word because it's meaning [real or not], It's just how it sounds when spoken that does it for me or not! *Dogga starts to suspect he's a little odd*

2 a loosely woven fabric used for these.

Don't ask why; I just can't stand the word 'bunting'! Grrr... Flags or decorations is fine, but errr... bunting *Dogga shudders after writing it for the 3rd time*
