Thanks Jen, I have settled on another comparison but I will contemplate cake and chewing in a different pharase.

Paddling is to canoeing as rowing is to boating. (Bingo)

Tea is to sipping as whiskey is to nipping.

Here is another one that I want to put up for grabs (based on cdsg23's reply).

_______ is to _______ as sweat is to exercise.

Some of my favorite words are reserved for expression.

Flyblown: The situation is flyblown; meaning that blow flies are blowing it.

Belly-up: The poetry reading has gone belly up; meaning that it is now dead-in-the water.

I'm sitting on ready and rocking on go. :D

Hotdog versus Wiener: I would rather be a hot dog than a wiener. We are planning to have a wiener roast. Would you like to come?

Antidisestablishmentarianism (only because it's the longest word :lol: )
I'm not sure if I have a favourite word, maybe...eternity.

Point of interest, pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis is the longest word in the english language, not antidisestablishmentarianism.

Probably "chivalry," and "quixotic," mainly for the meaning. The two go hand in hand. :mrgreen:

So pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis then.

Point of interest, it means a lung disease caused by the inhalation of silica dust. Just in case anyone was wondering.

Really, no one knows the greatest word or phrase in English? No one has seen Darko? Guess I'll be the first.
