“Cellar Door”

8 07 2006

The word “Cellar Door” in the English language is generally thought to be the most beautiful.

The phrase is also introduced in the 2001 film Donnie Darko, in which the character Karen Pomeroy (played by Drew Barrymore), a literature teacher, states: “A famous linguist once said that of all the phrases in the English language, of all the endless combinations of words, that cellar door was the most beautiful.”

I was most fixated by this particular statement that I had to look it up on the internet and post this.
