The word “giggle” is one of my all-time favorites. It’s not an onomatopoeia, but it still carries a rhythm that makes me grin just for saying it. It’s juvenile in the best way possible. I’d rather giggle than just simply laugh. Giggling is sillier and more joyous. It’s genuine, pure and entirely visceral.
Adults laugh, guffaw, chuckle, chortle, snicker, smirk and sneer.
