The cutest words in the English language

Some words are elegant, other words are funny. But some are cute – like kittens and small fluffy things. We're not entirely sure what makes them cute – it's certainly not length, nor is it necessarily their definition. Perhaps it's just the way they roll off the tongue. These are a few of the cutest words we've come across since we've been logging our favourite words in the English language:
